In this throat-ripping zombie play, Tobias hates mash and Steve hates Tobias, but when they discover their Mom is patient zero in a world of flesh-eating zombies, there’s no time left for ‘feelings’.
Pitting the gore of horror against the hysterical instability of family life, we watch brothers torn apart get pieced back together, only to be torn apart all over again.
Steve and Tobias versus Death is a comedy about two brothers trapped in their living room during a zombie apocalypse. Under-pinned by a deep sense of tragedy through a kaleidoscope of black comedy, we follow Steve and Tobias as they care for their infected mother, fend off the incoming zombies and mend their fractured relationship.
Improvised physical comedy and a post-modern backdrop collide to tell the nightmare story of an absentee father, an uncommunicative mother and a zombie apocalypse bursting through the door.
