Nothing like being attacked by a slug then held captive by a dragon to put you off your jelly and ice-cream.
Ethan, William and Fiona are about as different as three almost-teens can be. The only thing they have in common is that tomorrow is their birthday. And they've just discovered they have superpowers. Which is lucky because someone needs to protect the world from The Darkness. An evil overlord with plans to turn everything to ice.
Join our three heroes on an epic quest to save the planet in this new play for ages 7+ from award-winning writer Katie Douglas.
I Got Superpowers For My Birthday received its world premiere on 19 July 2016 at Hackney Showroom, London, before transferring to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in a production by Paines Plough.
