“With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility” – The ethos of Spider Man.
Your city has been plunged into a dark, broken, post-war world. The government employs The Night Guardian to protect you. Dr. Chaos, a renegade journalist, is the voice that will not be silenced who believes he brings the darkness into the light. Is the safety of a weapon truly determined by who controls it? Is the Night Guardian blind to a dystopian world or is Dr. Chaos just a madman in a mask?
“…There are so many deserving of retribution … and there is so little time.” – The words of Rorschach the anti-hero.

Written by award-winning playwright Jessica Messenger and previously being featured at the 2013 National Playwriting Festival and Perth Theatre Co.
