US Premiere of H.APOCALYPTUS Piccolo Spoleto Charleston SC USA 8-12 June 2011
The Salvage Company is bringing the zombie thriller, H. apocalyptus, to the Piccolo Spoleto Festival in Chareston, South Carolina this June, but needs your help to get them there.
Named a "Top 10 Must See" and a Critics Pick!
More than one hundred years in the future, life on Earth has changed. The devastating Zombie Apocalypse saw a rare and incurable disease ravage humanity, destroying the population and turning those who survived into a roving horde of flesh-eating killers. When three human refugees find themselves thrown together in an abandoned bar on the island of Key West, they must learn how to endure each other, and ultimately how to make a new life. Will they come together, create a family, and repopulate the human race, or will this be the final hour of our species?
The Salvage Company's six-person creative team will gather in Charleston from all over. Director Katherine Brook will come in from Pittsburgh. Playwright Dean Poynor and actress Monica Wyche will travel from New York City. Actors E.G. Heard and Paul Kaufmann will drive over from nearby Columbia, while project documentarian Chris White will come in from Greenville, SC.
Each of these professional artists believes deeply in the potential for Dean's new play...and is honored to have been invited to this internationally-known arts festival. They will not be paid, but with your help, basic transportation and housing costs can be covered.
Several unique backer rewards are offered in exchange for your generous donation that will make the US premier of this powerful new play possible.
Indeed, The Salvage Company can't do this without you.
