Book by Michael Conley, Music by Joseph Finlay, Lyrics by Richy Hughes
Featuring the Stiles and Drewe Award-winning song "Don't Look Down"

"Good afternoon, your honour. I’m Colin Bradley. I’m here today to ask you, your honour, not to let Christine Davis, my ex-wife, move out of the country with Emily Bradley, my daughter".

Colin is a loving husband and stay-at-home dad who adores his daughter.  But mistakes are made, and he finds himself in the fight of his life climbing Big Ben dressed as a superhero.  How did he get here?  And why couldn’t he get a bigger cape?

Superhero is a world premiere one-man musical that shows how you can ignore your fears when the stakes get high – really, really high.


Featuring the Stiles and Drewe award-winning song ‘Don’t Look Down’, Superhero is a heartwarming story that looks at what it means to be a parent in the twenty-first century – with or without the cape.

Superhero opened at the Southwark Playhouse on 3rd July 2017.
