“Cleverly and sensitively…engaging young minds with a fantastical story about mortality and the power of the imagination”
Superjohn loves to soar above the clouds. But one day–crash! His superpowers are stolen and he has to travel to a dangerous world to get them back. Laugh, shout, cry and join the adventure. Seen through the eyes of two children, John, a child with Leukemia, and his savior sister Star, Superjohn mixes fantasy and reality to explore how a child uses imagination in overcoming adversity.
Superjohn was inspired by a true story and made in collaboration with patients, families and medical practitioners at the Whittington Hosptial Paediatric oncology unit. The play was created for all the family (ages 7+).
The play was co-created by Rachel Parish, Titania Krimpas and Nadia Malik.
