THE CONFEDERATION OF RADICALLY ALTERED PEOPLE – SUPERHERO PLAY SCRIPT
The Confederation of Radically Altered People takes place in Tyler City in the present day and age. Superheroes exist and the city is protected by the Alliance of Justice against super villains and normal criminals alike. But what would it be like to have a useless or inconsequential “super” ability in a world of real heroes? Dave, the protagonist, has the ability to feel into the minds of others and give them a sharp pain similar to an ice cream headache. After starting a support group for similar people Dave and his compatriots are thrust into the roles of unlikely saviors when a new powerful arch-villain abducts and imprisons the Alliance of Justice.
“Brain-Freeze,” as Dave is soon known by, saves the day along with his six teammates which includes a person who can rewind time in 15 second increments (“Rewind”), a woman who can channel super strength, but always at a cost (“Side Effect”), as well as others who use their own special abilities to triumph over evil.
The Confederation of Radically Altered People was produced at Laney High School for a three night run last spring and had a very successful production as well as being previewed at the All County Play festival held by New Hanover County.
