Society has collapsed, the University of Hawai‘i is a wasteland, and zombies are roaming the island of Oahu after a recent accident on one of the nuclear submarines off Pearl Harbor. To increase their ratings, a major network has turned Kennedy Theatre into a television studio for regular broadcasts of their new reality show “Theatre Masterpieces and Zombies.” The contestants on this show not only have to act in a classical play but also to survive its performance to win a flight into a "safe zone" or coupons for food. The major challenge for the contestants is to stay in character and get through the performance alive while fending off zombies released into the arena by the popular host of the show. After the peak ratings of last month's The Tempest and Zombies, the producers have decided to go for a classic example of realism this time, Anton Chekhov's Uncle Vanya (1897).
