The mustachioed Professor Penelope Vindlevoss discovers Edward the Zombie on her recent anthropological expedition, and takes it upon herself to domesticate him.
What is Edward’s final lesson? To put on a circus, of course! Physical comedy and undead logic collide in this quirky fable about how to be truly human.
WINNER of the 2013 Participant Pick Award - Frigid Festival.
Created and performed by Carrie Brown and Karim Muasher
Directed by Mark Gindick
"They utilize mime, shadow, sight gags, sound bites and even a beautifully made puppet to make us laugh. And laughs were in abundance the night I attended. My face hurt a little bit after an hour of having an immovable grin."

"The Vindlevoss Family Circus Spectacular began in all its cast-of-two glory, and I was blown away (and almost eaten) ... What ensues is a hilarious mix of clowning, pantomime, puppetry, and delicious absurdity."
-Erica Cheung, East Village Arts
"The characters they embody – from strongman to highwire-walker to contortionist to clown to the lonely ticket-taker – are portrayed through inventive props and wonderful character work. Edvard the Zombie is a brilliant and comical creation. The Professor's mustache is almost a character by itself ... Are you human enough to pass the tests? The ambiance of the big top, ridiculous zombie stomp-rhythms, broccoli and gold stretch pants distinguish a show full of family memories and family tragedies told by a peculiar professor and her bald and bucktoothed zombie."
