Cone Man Running Productions offers this send-up of Oscar Wilde’s classic The Importance of Being Earnest. The British upper crust is so concerned with itself and its own social standing, that it fails to note the zombie in its midst.
Ah, the struggles of being British, rich and self-absorbed. The tribulations of the wealthy can be rather difficult to manage. So serve pâté or caviar? Which high-end brandy should be stocked at all times and in which crystal decanter? What to do when the hired help doesn’t show up and you simply must throw a fabulous dinner party? Or how to handle the replacement houseboy who happens to be a zombie?
Normally that would cause problems, only there are so many other, more pressing concerns, like how to hide your affair when you’re trying to get your spouse to admit that they are having an affair?
Is it possible to be so self-absorbed that you don’t even realize that there’s a zombie among you?
