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.

TODD – FULL LENGTH DRAMA SCRIPT BASED ON ‘SWEENEY TODD’

“Todd” is based on the infamous character, ‘Sweeney Todd, The Demon Barber of Fleet Street’, yet this story has a more humane approach and the author has depicted Sweeney Todd as a victim of circumstance and of his own vengeance.

It is 18th century England and Todd, a man who used to be known as Pope is sentenced to be transported to Botany Bay, Australia after spending 4 years in prison. He escapes and returns to London, seeking the whereabouts of his daughter Claire whom he has not seen since before his prison sentence. Whilst plotting his revenge, on the Judge who passed his extended prison sentence, Todd sets up as a Barber in Fleet Street, having acquired barber and surgeon skills during his adventures on the high seas. His passion for revenge affects him deeply and he changes into a bitter, cold hearted murderer. He finds his daughter in surprising circumstances, with the help of his lawyer friend, Jonathan, who is unaware of Todd’s change in personality. As for his quest – revenge is far from sweet for Sweeney Todd.
