I GOT SUPERPOWERS FOR MY BIRTHDAY

by Katie Douglas

Ethan, William and Fiona are about as different as three almost-teens can be. The only thing they have in common is that tomorrow is their birthday. And they've just discovered they have superpowers.

 

Which is lucky because someone needs to protect the world from The Darkness. An evil overlord with plans to turn everything to ice.

 

Join our three heroes on an epic quest to save the planet in this brand new play for ages 7+ from award winning writer Katie Douglas.
