Opening this Friday, May 14, at the Overtime Theater is the new original play The Life & Death of the Amazing Captain Piledriver. Written by Scott McDowell and directed by Lupe Flores, the new, live-action show is a world premiere production.
In this original superhero tale, superpowers are a way of life in Excalibur City. But when the masks and secret identities come off, it’s not uncommon for heroes and villains to be friends. When the city’s champion, Captain Piledriver, falls in battle, Excalibur City is left reeling. Now his girlfriend, Cobalt Girl and his best friend, the villainous Midnight Fiend, must cope with his death and try and find common ground, not knowing that a new problem is growing between them…love.
The Overtime Theater has done a great job with original productions like this one (who can forget The Brain That Wouldn’t Die?), gathering together some remarkably talented performers and crew. This show is definitely worth checking out!
