Danny Hero

Book and Lyrics by Timothy Knapman

Musical and Lyrics by Laurence Mark Wythe 

Commissioned by Made in Corby 

Produced by Perfect Pitch 


Danny McIntyre lives with his mum in a provincial town that has a great industrial past and an uncertain future.

But where Danny truly lives is in his head - in a wonderful fantasy world where he is a powerful superhero, sent to Earth from outer space to defend the human race and fight for all that is true and just. 

When a charismatic businessman turns up, promising to revitalise the town and bring it new prosperity, almost everyone is taken in - but not Danny.  He tries to show them the truth, but his words and actions are twisted by his enemies until Danny stands alone.  Can he find the strength to become the hero he's always dreamed of being?
