Hipsters may be taking over inner cities, fair trade coffee shops and organic supermarkets across the country, but the trendies are invading the Phoenix Theatre in a more literal way.

Hipster Apocalypse is the latest work from the Coniston theatre, as a band is pitted against hipster zombies, with the world's future at stake.

The play, opening on Friday, has a different ending each night - the climax is an epic Battle of the Bands, and audiences choose a winner to dictate the conclusion of the play.

Production director Martin Gallagher said it was inspired by a university project, and was pulled together in three months.

Hipster Apocalypse is on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday nights until August 30.
