Drama, Full-length

ZOMBIE: THE AMERICAN is a cross between Jacobean tragedy and Dr. Strangelove, a futuristic political satire set in the year 2063.

Thom Valentine, the first openly gay President of the United States, faces a host of problems: an imminent civil war, the threat of an African invasion, an adulterous First Gentleman, and zombies in the basement of the White House!

With his power, his marriage, and the nation’s well-being at stake, he must decide what he cares most about saving…and at what cost.
