SYNOPSIS

In this stage adaptation by Alexander Frank, three comic characters tell the tale of their inventor: Donald Delpe, 14 years old. He is a troubled teenager. 

​

Not only is he a ‘terrible teen’ by default, as obsessed with sex, music, videogames and drugs as the rest of his gang, but he is also suffering from a life-threatening form of leukaemia, which makes him an even more difficult boy, both for his parents and his teachers. 

​

Escaping into his own comic-book realm of immortal superheroes, ruthless villains and sex-crazed vamps, he repeatedly dashes his family’s hopes by refusing to fight the battles facing him in the real world.
