ABOUT THE PLAY
Original text written for Zangenberg's Teater with Rasmus Iversen.
Opened at Zangenberg’s Teater, February 2001.
Plenty of stage fights and action.
2 actors (2M). 3 roles.
From 7 years.
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!
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™ 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.
