Eli Keren has written a new play called Super which is next week’s ADC lateshow. Today I met up with them at Wolfson College to do a photoshoot. The play is about two group of super heroes, one evil and one good.
The Justice League of North West and Central London, Potters Bar and Cuffley want to use their newfound superpowers to ‘fight crime and s**t’. The Siblinghood of Evil want to use theirs for ‘maximum personal gain, minimum collateral damage’. The problem is, they unknowingly book the same room for their meetings. Posing respectively as a karate class and an urban dance team, members of the two groups meet, socialise and even date, all the while unaware that once they put their masks on, they’re bitterest of enemies.
Here are the photos from the evening.
