SuperHal will save us all

28 January Shakespeare Cosplay Cabaret

7 – 18 March SuperHal – the superhero origin story of Shakespeare’s Henry V

From The Puzzle Collective, who brought us The Tempest: Steampunked comes a spectacular new adventure. Shakespeare’s two Henry IV plays along with Henry V tell the story of a prince learning to understand and use his power. But what if that included superpowers? These favourites of the Shakespeare canon are being reimagined in a world where the many beloved and colourful characters involved are gifted with some astonishing special abilities. The journey of the hero to accept responsibility and wield power for the greater good is a classic of the comic book world – but Shakespeare got there first!

There are two events to mark in your diary:

The Shakespearean Superhero Cosplay Cabaret at the Red Rattler in Marrickville, 28 January…
