Tattered Capes

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...
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 supervillain’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.

Originally a 10-minute play commissioned as a part of Theatre Unleashed's Play/Time one-act festival in 2014, where writers birthed a new scene every week for six weeks, the script re-emerged at the inaugural Short+Sweet Festival in Hollywood in 2016. Shortly after the festival closed, Greg began the process of expanding the script into a full-length story through the artistic crucible that is Los Angeles' Serial Killers at Sacred Fools. The script made it to the playoffs, but was "killed" in its fourth episode. The script is now entering its fifth draft, and is slated to have a workshop production at the 2019 Hollywood Fringe Festival.
