Part of Con-Con's 2022 season
Written by Jennifer Haley
Directed by Cory Molner
In a suburban subdivision with identical houses, parents find their teenagers addicted to an online horror video game. The game’s setting? A subdivision with identical houses. The goal? Smash through an army of zombies to escape the neighborhood for good. But as the line blurs between virtual and reality, both parents and players realize that fear has a life of its own.
"Playing like a nifty episode of The Twilight Zone, the story builds to an affectingly gruesome finale [...] with its small-scale tech demands and four-person ensemble, Neighborhood seems a likely candidate for legit troupes hoping to benefit from the play’s youthful, tech-savvy appeal." - Variety
"Haley’s suspenseful play beamed cautionary messages about inattentive parents of teenagers addicted to online video games. A sense of unease about the diminishing line between real life and virtual reality lingered for days after the suburban zombies in Neighborhood 3 were vanquished with weed whackers and hedge clippers." - Louisville Courier-Journal
