Don’t. Breathe. A word.

Radio DJ Grant Mazzy was once king of the airwaves, but his big mouth and even bigger ego have reduced him to a washed-up star. Forced to leave the national stations behind, he finds himself at Beacon Radio, Pontypool’s little-known station in the South Wales valleys.

On a snowy St Dwynwen’s Day, Mazzy and his team settle in for another breakfast show of news, weather, traffic and call-ins. But things take a disturbing turn when muddled reports come in of an outbreak of riots and babbling crowds in the town.

Panic spreads. Terror closes in. Can Mazzy remain on air to make sense of it all, or will Pontypool fall silent?

Based on the original radio play by Tony Burgess which inspired the 2008 cult horror film, Pontypool is a new stage adaptation of the story that turned the zombie genre on its head.

Adapted for the stage by Hefin Robinson and directed by Dan Phillips, with immersive sound design by Ben Samuels.

A Wales Millennium Centre Production.
