Pleasance

Admin

On Hollywood Boulevard, a group of actors are posing as famous characters for photos with tourists. Right now it's 100°, Batman has just punched Robin in the face and the whole thing is about to be on TMZ. Captain Jack Sparrow has fainted and Catwoman is screaming. It's all gone a bit wrong. Super is a darkly comic drama about ambition, love and overwhelming failure told by two not-very-super heroes. Previous work: **** (ThreeWeeks). **** (EdFringeReview.com). As heard on BBC Radio 4.

#SNAPCHATZ Episode 47: Embracing the quirkiness of life at #EdFringe 2023

This episode of #SNAPCHATZ is brimming with the quirkiness of life, as we traverse the dark comedy of Hollywood Boulevard's costumed performers in Super, meet a peculiar George Clooney lookalike in Nick Pupo: Addicted, and find humor in a dramatic domestic saga with Bilal Zafar: Imposter.

EdFringe Talk: Super

"I learned that you could buy prawn cocktail Quavers in select supermarkets, Rib 'n Saucy Nik-Naks have not been discontinued as I had thought, and I prefer the Red Leicester variant of Mini Cheddars."

Edinburgh Interview: Max Dowler on Super at Pleasance Courtyard

"I'm playing a man who sort of considers himself a superhero because he dresses up as one, which leads to some quite fun moments in the play".
