What I liked

The production quality was great. I love all the details of the props and costumes. Each costume was crafted with each character’s personalities and quirks in mind. Other small details like having sounds from phones, doorbells, and devices heard directly nearby said props added a strong authenticity to the play.

What I didn't like

Personally, I wasn’t fully sold on some of the comedy as it felt that the play took great lengths to maintain a realistic tone only to be a little too ridiculous at times.

My overall impression

Modern media is somewhat oversaturated with superhero movies so having to see a premise like this was really interesting. It reminded me my favorite animated movie ‘Incredibles’ as the “superheroes” in this play hold mundane, familial problems and conversations such as fighting over tv remote, who peed on the toilet seat etc. This made the characters feel very relatable despite their unique backgrounds.
