Mosaic Lizard Theater offers a production of a darker genre. The story begins with a timid janitor's obsession with the wife of a corporation head and ends with the country in a full zombie attack.

"WAR COMES HOME" EVENT 
Film screening of the film "Das Boot" (1981), an epic German war film adapted from the 1973 novel by the same name. Set during WWII, the film tells the fictional story of U-96 and its crew. It depicts both the excitement of battle and the tedium of the fruitless hunt, and shows the men serving aboard U-boats as ordinary individuals with a desire to do their best for their comrades and their country. The film used an amalgamation of exploits from the real U-96 U-boat.
