Superhero Sanitarium

Book By: Scott Haan
Play #: 2158
Pages: 41 pgs
Cast: 3 m, 3 w

Lois Lancaster is a big-city journalist writing about the current state of mental health facilities. Her research takes her to a hospital populated with a unique group of quirky inmates who imagine they are crime-fighting superheroes. Speed Freak thinks he can run at incredible speeds, while enthusiastic Dim Bulb thinks he has the ability to turn off lights with his brain. Mental thinks she can read minds, despite being prone to sudden outbursts of bizarre non-sequiturs. Kevin, much less quirky and flamboyant than the other inmates, doesn’t embarrass himself with a ridiculous code name or costume...at least, not initially. Dr. Gail Eisner appears to be a kindly hospital administrator, a steady influence needed to effectively run a madhouse like this one. At first Lois finds their elaborate superhero fantasies to be an entertaining diversion, the wild delusions of unstable minds, until something unusual happens that makes her wonder .... Easy to stage and insanely fun for cast and audiences alike. (This script is also available as a full-length play for schools entitled "Superfreaks." A full-length community theatre version is "Insane With Power.")

Behind The Scenes

PLAYWRIGHT SCOTT HAAN TALKS ABOUT

“SUPERHERO SANITARIUM”

 

Q: WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO WRITE THIS PLAY?

A: I’ve always been fascinated by the possibilities of live theatre, which has provided a valuable creative outlet my entire life. I’m also a fan of comedies, of super-heroes, and of stories with interesting twists and surprises, and I found a way to combine all of these interests into one show. I wanted to take people away from their problems and hopefully make them smile and laugh for a while.

 

Q: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE PART OR LINE IN THE PLAY? WHY?

A: Without giving anything away, there’s a soft spot in my heart for the end of Scene 2. The reaction to that reveal is always my favorite moment whenever I watch the show.

 

Q: WHERE DID THE CHARACTERS COME FROM? ARE THEY BASED ON PEOPLE YOU KNOW?

A: Luckily, the characters aren't technically based on people I know (because that would be disturbing)...however, I did write their dialog with the voices of some actor friends in mind, and was thrilled when those same actors brought the characters to life for the first time during our world premiere. You guys rock!

 

Q: WHAT DID YOU TRY TO ACHIEVE WITH THIS PLAY?

A: Entertainment, pure and simple. My theatre experience has taught me that there’s a direct correlation between how much fun a cast has during rehearsals, and how much fun the audience has when the show opens. So I set out to write something that actors would really enjoy performing, that would let them be silly and loose and moronic. When we staged the premiere, several veterans in the cast said it was the most fun they’ve ever had onstage, and our audiences laughed their heads off, so mission accomplished!

 

Q: DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING ELSE YOU'D LIKE TO ADD?

A: I hope you enjoy the script. This is not a show that pretends to be more important than it actually is. It’s not pretentious or preachy. It’s people in ridiculous outfits acting silly, and having the best time doing it. You don’t have to be a fan of superheroes, or know anything about them, to enjoy it. You just need a sense of humor. Have fun!!!
