Listening to Kentucky Shakespeare's 'Night of the Living Dead: A Radio Play' on Halloween is a no-brainer
This Halloween, it's the living versus the DEAD!!!
Join us for a special rebroadcast of "Night of the Living Dead: A Radio Play" by Kentucky Shakespeare. Recorded in front of a live audience at Louisville Public Media studios in 2019, "Night of the Living Dead" features actors from Kentucky Shakespeare in a unique adaption of the 1968 cult classic, complete with Foley sound effects.
"Night of the Living Dead" takes us to a rural farmhouse in western Pennsylvania where seven people have taken refuge from a growing group strangely-active corpses.
