About the Play
First developed as a ten-minute play for Theatre Unleashed’s Play/Time in 2014, the script was re-mounted in August 2016 at Short+Sweet Hollywood, then expanded into a full-length play as a part of Serial Killers at Sacred Fools Theater later that year. A reading of the first full draft was organized in January 2018.
SYNOPSIS: It’s Kevin and Stephanie Connolly’s fifth wedding anniversary, and Kevin has a night of celebration planned for them. Of course, this means he won’t be going out on his regular patrol of Metro City as his alter-ego, M-Pulse, the self-appointed Eminence of Electromagnetism. But things should be fine without him for one night, right? Wrong. One would think that there could be no secrets left between a husband and wife after five years of matrimonial bliss, but when a powerful super villain’s attack interrupts Kevin and Stephanie’s date, a hero’s unmasking bears significant consequences for the Connollys. Consequences that will resonate and redefine their relationship forever.
