STORY

 

A bomb that will explode in less than 45 minutes, a superhero without his powers, and a wimp of a boy. These are the main ingredients.

 

The play is a frantic race against time through sewers and abandoned factories to find and disarm the bomb before the countdown reaches zero!

 

A performance full of action and stage fights, which makes the audience jump out of their seats in the final seconds before the bomb goes BOOOOOM!

LEONARDO

 

STRONGMAN™: Leonardo? That's a strange name.

 

LEONARDO: It's not! There are a lot of people, who are named Leonardo. Once upon a time there was a painter, who was named Leonardo. He is dead now. He lived down the road, and painted our kitchen ceiling. He fell off a ladder. Not in our house, though.

STRONGMAN™

 

STRONGMAN™: AAAAHH!

 

(STRONGMAN™ is tilting so he hangs on one arm and a leg under the beam).

 

LEONARDO: Strongman™! What are you doing there?

 

STRONGMAN™: Eh. I am just checking the bomb from below...

 

LEONARDO: Ok, that's cool.

 

DRENGEN & SUPERHELTEN

 

LEONARDO: 'Strongman!' Wow! That's a cool name! What do you do, when you are not chasing bad guys, I mean?

 

STRONGMAN™: A superhero is always on duty!

 

LEONARDO: What? What about your friends and family?

 

STRONGMAN™: Superheroes don't have time for friends and family.
