COWL GIRL by Anna Capunay is a queer superhero rom-com centering around themes such as chosen family, grief, mental illness, agoraphobia, queerness, and geek/cosplay subculture. The play was originally developed by Dramatic Question Theatre in NYC 2013 and was turned into a web series pilot in 2014 in Chicago by Carlos Lorenzo Garcia and Aric Jackson which you can view here.
We're thrilled to announce that COWL GIRL will be making its Off-Broadway premiere on August 10th-August 27th at The Players Theatre starring Mike Pollock (voice of Dr. Eggman in the SONIC THE HEDGEHOG franchise) as Jason.
Synopsis: Cowl Girl always wears a Batman cowl, masking herself from the outside world. Will her friend, Jason and the intriguing nephew of her arch-enemy, Alex, be able to get her to break out of her shell? If you like 80's pop culture, Pee-wee Herman, sci-fi, and comic book heroes, then this is the show for you! This is a love letter to kids who grew up in the 80's and remember what real cartoons, music, and super heroes were like back in the day.
A small Encores! At City Center-styled industry script-in-hand workshop with some design elements was held at LIU Brooklyn in Brooklyn, NYC in April 2022 (the following photos reflect this production).
