Do you know how many lives we saved?
And what do we get?
A bloody state pension.
Strongman and Lady X were our seventies superheroes. They saved countless lives and ended disasters before we even knew about them. Then came the pains of old age…
The world has forgotten that Dave and Xenia were once our champions. But it’s time for them to step out of retirement… because one final adventure awaits.
THE SILVER SUPERHEROES is a story of life after retirement and what it means to be a hero.
Presented in Association with Aberdeen Performing Arts
