The Crimson Retribution
Darkly comic drama with a superhero sleeping on the sofa.
As part of this year's 24:7 theatre festival, ShrinkWrapped Theatre presents the latest play by MEN Theatre Award nominated playwright Steve Pearce: The Crimson Retribution.
Amy’s world is coming apart. Her relationship with Sean is failing, his half-brother Kyle’s after more than she’s willing to give and now there’s a super-hero sleeping on the sofa. True, he doesn’t actually claim to be a super-hero, but then again, no-one ever claims to be a crook

"...The Crimson Retribution is a real gem of a one act play. Well written, witty dialogue, unusual twist on a storyline, well acted and with some sublime pieces of physical theatre, it’s definitely one to see at 24:7." ★★★★½
