Team Justice, a team of four incredibly obnoxious superheroes, must overcome a group of supervillains who have ingratiated themselves with the city council of Littleton. The villains have taken over the city by entangling its superheroes in a nightmare of tickets, citations, and bureaucratic red tape. The only way to repeal the supervillains’ nefarious legislation is for the arrogant, socially incompetent superheroes to somehow convince enough random citizens to sign a petition…without using their superpowers, which are now illegal. They must do this before the final phase of the villains’ plan goes into effect and Littleton is doomed forever! The heroes take to the streets, but quickly discover they aren't as popular among the townspeople as they thought they were. With their super-sized egos and entitled antics preventing them from getting the signatures they need, the superheroes decide to appear on "Good Morning Littleton," a local talk show, to solicit a larger audience. This only leads to their offending more people. However, the heroes are inspired by one of the show’s commercials for a low-budget law firm. Will the heroes beat the villains in the final showdown in the city council chamber? About an hour.
LUKE SIMMONS TALKS ABOUT TEAM JUSTICE AND THE CITY HALL SUPERVILLAINS:
Q: What inspired you to write this play?
A: I thought it'd be fun to write a superhero play where the heroes are just a little bit hard to root for!
Q: What is your favorite part of this play? Why?
A: My favorite part of this play would have to be the heroes bickering with the townspeople over the petition. I think it lets everyone get some great jokes in, and a grouchy old lady is always great for a laugh.
Q: Where did the characters come from? Are they based on people you know?
A: The characters are probably a combination of every superhero movie I've ever seen, and The Chick is a combination of every girl I've seen those movies with.
Q: What did you try to achieve with this play?
A: I wanted to write a play where the actors could have fun being superheroes and supervillains, and the audience could have fun laughing at the dialogue.
Q: Do you have anything else you’d like to add?
A: This is a fast-paced play that doesn't really set out to achieve anything more than a great time for everyone. I hope everyone has as much fun performing and watching it as I did writing it.
