Sex Lives of Superheroes
Sex Lives of Superheroes
"The surprise gem of the [Manhattan Punch-line] festival is the work of Stephen Gregg, whose wistful comedy about the tenacity of neurosis, Sex Lives of Super Heroes, contains the best extended metaphor since Virgil." —The New Yorker
By Stephen Gregg.

Cast: 1m., 2w. (3 actors either sex.) Michael is so obsessed with his old girlfriend, Lisa, that he allows her weekly visits to his apartment which she strips, piece by piece, of his possessions. Elenor, Michael's date for the evening, is appalled to find that he copes with his frustrations by giving fantasy lectures about the sexual habits of comic book heroes. The two seem a complete mismatch until Michael discovers that Elenor has her own obsession...When this play opened in New York, The New Yorker wrote, "The surprise gem of the [Manhattan Punch-line] festival is the work of Stephen Gregg, whose wistful comedy about the tenacity of neurosis, Sex Lives of Super Heroes, contains the best extended metaphor since Virgil." One int. set. Approximate Running Time: 30 minutes.
