Heroes and villains! Yes, they are the springboard for our next ten-minute play reading series at Urban Stages. Eight playwrights were selected to write a play for a specific pool of actors incorporating a quote in the body of their work from selected heroes and villains chosen from historical, fictional and comic book figures, from the Man of Steel to the Fuhrer; from Pulitzer Prize winner Toni Morrison to Pocahontas. An additional challenge was to reference another hero or villain in the script … or have one of these figures appear in the play!
