4 a.m.: Radio Theatre: O Negative Commitments From the folks at KZ88, "O Negative Commitments" is a campy bloody dark comedy about an attack from the undead. After the screams, sound effects, and dialog we learn that there is only one thing that zombies are truly afraid of: Commitment. It's an original story by A.Chris and was originally performed live at a local amphitheater as a stage play (including drenching the audience with 155 gallons of stage blood.) This is the radio version of the play. The original characters were recorded in our studio and some of the dialog rewritten to explain actions to listeners. This show is available through the Pacifica radio archives.
