Bridie doesn’t tend to stand out. It’s halfway through her first year of high school and nothing seems to be changing. That is until, a box mysteriously appears on her bed. Attached to it is a card that reads, “It’s time to become who you were born to be Wonder Fly. The Red Wasp strikes midnight tomorrow.”

Wonder Fly is a coming-of-age hero’s quest. The only problem is; no one’s sure who the hero is supposed to be. Set in Sydney-slash-Gotham City, the play leaps out of the world of a comic book. People are isolated, and evil preys on the spaces in between. There are bright lights and dark alleyways, just the way the Red Wasp intended.

Armed with nothing more than a box, a costume, a mask, a torch, a few eclectic superpowers and a map with a big ‘X’ on it, Wonder Fly asks the question: if we are all heroes, who does that make the villain?
