Description

Chicago Reader -Highly Recommended!

"Otherworld Theater's excellently plotted saga is enjoyable and moving... a piece that sounds real depths, earns more laughs than groans, and despite utter transports of dorkitude gets rich performances out of a committed ensemble."

PerformInk - Critics' Pick

"It’s impossible not to smile during Otherworld Theatre’s production of ALL I WANT IS ONE MORE MEANWHILE… It’s during the scenes of comic book magic that the performances and direction make the most of this perfect platform created by the design team, through the appropriation of comic book tropes."

Twenty years ago she was Perfectra, an artificially engineered superhero impervious to humanity's flaws. Today, she is Jane, a real woman who gave up power and perfection to become a mother. But estranged from her daughter and battling against a no-longer-perfect physique is not the ending she planned on. Discovering her daughter has not only been kidnapped by a canine-controlling criminal but worse still, engaged to a local superhero- can this supermom stand by and let her daughter spend her life dangling in distress? Especially as she suspects her daughter might have a secret of her own...
