I Want to Eat Brains (or the day I killed all my friends)
I Want to Eat Brains (or the day I killed all my friends) is a ten minute zombie parody musical. The world is in the midst of a zombie apocalypse, and our rag tag heroes are the only survivors. But what happens when one of them becomes infected? And would being a zombie really be so bad? I mean, honestly, when the undead rise, what's left to do but sing along?
