Origin Story

I was invited by Theatre West to write a ten minute play as part of their Moving On season to be performed as a curtain raiser for Rose Biggin’s Plunge at the Bike Shed Theatre in November 2015.

Origin Story is a play about superheroes and life choices.  It’s a story about who we’re born as and who we chose to be.  It’s a story about trust in those that profess to keep us safe.

It was inspired by a love of comic books and the feeling that maybe Nick Fury should have given Peter Parker and Miles Morales a little bit more of a choice before signing fourteen year olds up to join the Ultimates.
