‘Deadinburgh achieves something special in so effectively patrolling the boundary between straightforward horror-movie excitement and the powerful ethical and strategic questions raised.’ – The Scotsman

Deadinburgh introduced the audience to the worlds of epidemiology and biomedical science through a night of immersive theatre.  In a theatrical world, with actors playing the infected hordes and besieged soldiers, the audience met genuine scientists using real science to solve a fictitious disease.

                                             

In the end the audience had to

decide whether to destroy the city, cull the infected, or search for a cure; the fate of the city was in their hands. Through the outbreak of a zombie epidemic Deadinburgh asked ‘what does it really mean to be human’ whilst offering parallels with real life science and procedures for managing disease outbreaks.
