The Cast
  • GABRIELLE: (early 20s): Even though she is disappointed she didn't land the leading role, she approaches her part as a Bridesmaid Zombie extra with all the enthusiasm of a serious artist. She is determined, ambitious, and somewhat of a snob.
  • LIBBY: (early 20s): A pre-law student on summer vacation, Libby landed this extra job as a Bridesmaid Zombie through a Facebook connection. She has no acting experience and tries hard to keep up with what is going on around her.
  • BOYD/BONNIE: (early 20s): As the Production Assistant on "Revenge of the Zombie Bridesmaids," Boyd/Bonnie is responsible for getting the extras in place, communicating on his/her headset with other production assistants, making sure props are available, and orchestrating some of the basic movements.


Join Gabrielle and Libby on the set of Revenge of the Zombie Bridesmaids as they prepare to play extras. Before production assistant Boyd/Bonnie exits to get the actress playing the bride, he/she gives Gabrielle the news that she will be the zombie who gets to take down the bride. Thrilled about this career opportunity, Gabrielle throws herself into a series of exercises which are interrupted by the hapless, Libby— who knows nothing about acting or being on a movie set. Terrified that Libby’s inexperience will lead to their scene being cut, Gabrielle becomes an instant acting coach working at warp speed to define Libby as a prime actress. It’s one laugh after another, culminating in a freak accident that brings the girls to a new understanding.

The Setting
The wreckage of a garden wedding gone terribly wrong. A few strewn folding chairs, a broken arch or trellis, stray body parts, ripped flower vines, and a bench give us the feeling that something of incredible force has torn through.

Author Biography
At the age of ten, Sylvia was cast as the Widow Douglas in a children's theatre production of Tom Sawyer. After she stopped weeping over failing to land the part of Becky Thatcher, Sylvia discovered the fantastic bonanza that comes with character roles. She also never forgot the electric excitement pulsing through the cast as each child waited to step on stage for the first time.  Many years have passed since that long ago debut, but nothing has diminished Sylvia's love of theatre. After earning a BFA in Theatre (High Honors) and M.Ed. in English Education from the University of Florida, Sylvia relocated to Atlanta, Georgia where she continued to appear on stage at a variety of theatres. Additionally, she taught classes and directed plays of all genres for the Shiloh High School Theatre Department (a.k.a. Shiloh Onstage) in Snellville, Georgia. Sylvia directed her own play, Prom Night, for Shiloh Onstage in 2006. She is thrilled the play won Second Place in the 2008 Beverly Hills Theatre Guild Marilyn Hall Playwriting for Youth Competition. Other plays by Sylvia include: Grandmothers' Gifts (to be presented at The Bonderman Symposium Playwright Slam at the Indiana Repertory Company in March 2009); and A Snowy Night In Iowa (selected by Process Theatre for its annual Read-a-Thon in November 2008).  Sylvia is a member of The Dramatists Guild of America; The American Screenwriter's Association; The American Alliance for Theatre and Education; and Working Title Playwrights.
