It's just a regular Friday night in Chicago... except for the whole zombie apocalypse thing. Nealshow Productions presents "Just Chilling", a new play following six friends trying to have a nice Friday night on the third day of the zombie apocalypse. Performances will take place at Cornservatory and run about 90 minutes. People may be eating each other’s faces clean off, but Rod (Dave Satterwhite) is unwilling to surrender the yuppie lifestyle he’s worked so hard to attain. Against his partner Lani’s (Liz Greenwood) better judgment, the couple invites Jess (Jorge Salas) over for some Friday night fun and games. Front desk attendant Chet (Chuck Merydith), Jess’s newer girlfriend Nina (Madison Hill), and upstairs neighbor Jordin (Eileen Hertz), round out the party. Safe behind a strong Chicago door and lubricated with white whiskey and mouthwash, it’s not long before the face-eating zombies outside become too hard to ignore. This ragtag bunch must make a choice, to face their new reality head-on or be overwhelmed by it. A refreshingly frank examination of how we process and cope with tragedy, "Just Chilling" will have you laughing your face clean off. [less-]
