Hearts Like Fists by Adam Szymkowicz


Love is a Battlefield. Where superheroes fight crime.

The mysterious Dr. X is on a mission to make happy couples of The City pay, murdering them while they sleep with his specially designed poison that goes straight to the heart.

Now it’s up to the Crimefighters to stop Dr. X before he kills love forever.

With emotions so big and stakes so high that it takes a comic book world to contain them, Hearts Like Fists is a an action adventure noir comedy unlike anything you’ve ever seen on stage.

“A fun, twisted exploration of what it means when someone Hulk-smashes your heart on the ground into a million pieces.” – Village Voice
