About this event


Sophie and Jamie are on their way to a fancy dress party dressed as zombies when a misjudged selfie makes them the centre of a social media storm.


Battling online abuse, internet trolls and the consequences of a viral recognition, their friendship is pushed to its very limits.


A funny and thought-provoking play, Zombiegate is a razor-sharp satire about the rise of internet trolls and the return of public shaming, exploring social media, mobs and toxic masculinity.
