The Flea presents this suspenseful tale about a quiet cul-de-sac where no one can control the growing addiction to a new online game, and real life and virtual reality blur dangerously. More…
In a suburban subdivision with identical houses, parents find their teenagers addicted to an online horror video game. The game setting: a subdivision with identical houses. The goal: smash through an army of zombies to escape the neighborhood for good. Using a GPS map, the game allows teenagers to battle zombies in their own neighborhood. But as the line blurs between virtual and reality, both parents and players realize that fear has a life of its own. The live action game will be played around TriBeCa and the city in conjunction with the run as a part of The Flea’s continued effort to promote new types of engagement with their audience and community.
