There's a whole galaxy of starry superheroes out there: Batmans, Supermans and Toxic Avengers glow neon-bright and give Hollywood execs poundsigns for eyes, adorning the t-shirts of quite a few young audience members at this show. But they're a world away from the 13-year-old protagonists of this joyful kids' play – and what a relief that is.
It's a three-hander with no set, no props and definitely no special effects. But you don't miss them. Katie Douglas's script bursts with life and colour as it tells the story of a trio of newly-minted teenagers with brand new superpowers to contend with. One can make ice, one can shoot fire, and one can make the ground crumble. But they're on shaky ground themselves, as they try to make sense of a world that's tough enough without supernatural powers thrown into the mix.
