“The Revenants”

Theater review: The zombies are in your garage

In 'The Revenants' the zombies are familiar and they are very close...

After a great deal of research into medieval English texts (*cough Wikipedia), I have determined that Molly and Joseph aren’t really zombies. Sure, they look and act like zombies, with the moaning and the grabbing and mad desire to feed on human flesh, but no, they are actually revenants.

For proof, I have all that research I did (*cough not-very-much) AND the title of the play in which they appear: “The Revenants” by Scott T. Barsotti, which The Reformers theater company is enacting in an actual garage in the Buckman neighborhood.
