A CULT show from a Lancaster theatre company has conquered Hollywood again.

How To Survive a Zombie Apocalypse by After Dark Theatre won the Best International Show award at the Hollywood Fringe Festival.

Fellow Fringe participants, critics and audience members voted for the group’s hilarious and bizarre “seminar” where they give tips on what to do should the undead strike.

“When we decided to go and visit LA our main concern was whether US audiences would get our off the wall slightly crazy seminar, ” said Ben Muir who plays Dr Dale in the “School of Survival”.

“But the response to the show was phenomenal – we were completely blown away by how enthusiastic our audiences were to get involved and stay alive (even though we had one of the worst survival rates ever!) and we got great reviews from the press too.”
