Ahoy, maties, this bizarre adventure on the high seas comes with its own zombie alert.

Capt. Timothy Buttons battles dastardly Dr. Booth and Felatious Crumb, who are scheming to unleash 1,000 years of darkness by sacrificing innocent maiden Daisy — and the captain’s main squeeze. The motley crew includes Parisian lover Pierre fawning over first mate Jack Garmin, lusty Cookie with an eye (and hands) for serving wench Petunia, and, of course, bloodied zombies who stagger across the decks to raise further mayhem.

The campy action escalates to the final showdown punctuated by techno dance breaks. Iconic rock snippets from Led Zeppelin to the Rolling Stones are laced throughout the 60-minute comedy. There’s never a dull moment, although the convoluted plot sometimes risks capsizing the entire production.

— Holly Harris

 

From the Fringe program:

A tale of love and the undead on the high seas, "Maiden Voyage 4: Come Hell or High Water" is a stage adaptation of the fourth film in a trilogy that doesn't exist. That makes sense, right?

The team that brought you 2009's Best of Fest winner "Customer Relations" and last year's smash hit Rogue Cop (5 STARS - CBC, 4 STARS - Winnipeg Free Press) is back with an absurd showdown between a captain, his faithful crew and the forces of evil.

With zombies.
