A car crash. Three people dead. One of them naked. It's up to a detective and a police officer to figure out what happened in this supernatural upside-down mystery. "Only the waggish adobe theater company could pull off a light, pleasant show in which everybody dies in a hideous car crash. Playwright Jeremy Dobrish crafts a modern fairy tale in this supernatural comic treat. In separate vignettes, each of the three central characters takes us back in time through the events leading up to the aforementioned catastrophe, which is catalyzed by a mysterious magical dog who grants each person what he or she most desires. In the case of seventy-year-old Abe that wish is youth; in that of Cathy, it is to be seen as beautiful in the eyes of her husband; and in that of Jonathan, it is not to be seen at all - to become invisible. In a refreshing twist on a hoary formula, everybody is ecstatic and even fulfilled upon having his or her heart's longing instantly come true ... Dobrish's highly original script." -Trav S D, Time Out New York "It's a shaggy hound that uncovers the scent of truth in SUPERPOWERS, Jeremy Dobrish's upside-down mystery. A detective and a uniformed officer try to piece together a car accident in which the driver and two pedestrians, one of them naked, die. This procedural gimmick - the police remaining clueless to the end while the audience discovers what happened - was popular a century ago and is still fun." -D J R Bruckner, New York Times
