    A detective and his partner search for Supernova (the villain), who hates The Fantastic Phenomenon (the hero) so much that he is killing superhero super-fans. The detective's world quickly begins to unravel as he questions his own belief in law and justice and starts to peel back the good-versus-evil veneer, exposing the realities of life and death and the ultimate consequences of trusting those who tell us to "keep the faith." The black-and-white morality of superheroes is turned on its head in this play.

    This play combines both comedy and tragedy in the story of three women—mother, daughter and servant—bound together by blood and loyalty. In this new twist on the Oedipus complex, we take a look at the myth from Jocasta's complex point of view as a wife, devoted mother and conflicted daughter. These are strong and complex women who struggle against their fate—and sometimes one another. But their love and devotion is the link that binds them together in life and death.
