‘Romeo & Juliet’ Meet Zombies in Short Film Contest

Scott Edelman, author of What Will Come After (a collection of zombie short-stories), has announced he’s launching a “short film” contest around his 1998 play A Plague on Both Your Houses. The play imagines Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet with an infusion of Night of the Living Dead.

A Plague on Both Your Houses has never been staged and Edelman is eager to see what fans of zombie fiction will come up with. Edelman states, “The clip can be in any format—live action, animation, marionettes, claymation, kinetic typography, sock puppets, anything you think will best amaze me with your creativity.” The reward for the best 3+ minute short is $200.
