Hero Worship

By Kenny Boyle – 2014

By this point you’d have to have been living in the middle of Knowhere not to have heard of the Avengers, the X-men or the Justice League.

But it takes a special kind of geek to assume that “Knowhere” isn’t a typo… it’s the severed head of a Celestial, floating ever closer to the edge of existence inhabited by people who come for the low rent and don’t really consider the high insurance premiums.

And it’s that kind of geek that this show is about. A hard working, nice, quiet boy who doesn’t seem to be so great at making friends; even though he can name all 130 members of the Avengers. But deep down he’s a superhero, desperate to discover his secret power and earn his origin story.

An original one man show; funny from the get go, occasionally heart-warming, saddening, dramatic, poetic and ultimately uplifting. The tale of a grown orphan who spent his weekends writing letters to Peter Parker, being jolted out of the fantasy-land of comics by his unannounced side-kick – a lost dog.

Accessible to all: from the most seasoned comic fan to people who wouldn’t know Spider-man if they found him stuck in their bath. Suitable for all ages.

We Never Land

By Kenny Boyle – 2014

Wendy is on the run from the authorities

On the run, hiding in her grandmother’s attic and frantically recording a message to her loved ones telling her side of the story before she is arrested for stealing a priceless work of art: meet Wendy, telling potentially the last story she’ll ever tell.

The more we hear (her friendship with artist Cat, and relationship with her struggling grandmother), the harder it is to tell if she’s flying or falling. An often hilarious, touching story of friendship, love, mental health and stealing priceless art.

‘An immensely engaging and appealing monologue with alternating moments of humour and pathos’ (Playwright Studio Scotland).

A brand new Scottish play by Kenny Boyle – We Never Land was hugely successful in the Edinburgh fringe festival in 2014, and appeared in CNova.
