Set in post-Zombie Apocalypse Melbourne, 'Anno Zombie' delves into the lives of a group of survivors holed up in a Melbourne department store. While they debate their life and death options, one can"t help but wonder what the Zombies are up to? A Zom-Com about living and dying, and undying (with coffee), Anno Zombie provides fertile ground to explore the never ending human obsession with the end of the world, and Zombies.

"A great and abiding love of horror and Zombies was what got me started on 'Anno Zombie'. I wanted to write something funny, and Melbourne. After Zombies, Melbourne is another of my great loves. This is a Melbourne play, about our city, our people and the things we, Melbournians, all know. It's a big energy, comic take on the Zombie Apocalypse and the unique way that Australians would deal with it.", explains playwright Bridgette Burton.

One of Melbourne"s longest running independent companies, Baggage Productions has been creating and developing theatre since 1999 and is dedicated to producing original work. They seek to encourage greater representation of women in the arts through providing a platform for women"s voices to be heard, and their stories to be told. Previous seasons include 'Beaten Hearts' (which was a sell-out success in Melbourne, and went on to a critically acclaimed season in Los Angeles), 'The Subconscious Cometh', 'Rhonda is in Therapy', 'The Okinawa Hymen Repair Kit Factory', and 'Ambition'. They also present the annual 'Madwomen Monologues' which showcase the work of emerging women writers; attracting high-calibre, diverse and compelling scripts, playing to packed houses each year.

"... a gripping, touching, and dramatic piece of theatre" - ArtsHub (Rhonda is in Therapy)
