Superhero Dilemma, The

FARCE. The Smiths look like an average, ordinary family, but they are hiding a big secret. After noticing strange happenings at home, Cayenne, the youngest in the family, finally confronts her mother and discovers the truth about her family: Everyone is a superhero! Cayenne’s father is “Purple Thunder,” her mother is “Iron Cookie,” and her two older sisters are “Wolfgirl” and “Nightmare.” And in just two months, Cayenne will transform into the superhero, “Hot Coals Woman,” complete with a red sequined bodysuit, a neon sign on her chest that flashes “Hot Coals Woman,” and the ability to shoot lightning bolts out of her nose. Horrified at the thought, Cayenne is determined to remain a normal human in a family where “normal” is a dirty word, but first she must help her family defeat two escaped super-villains. Easy to stage with one simple set.
