Meet the man who created the Fantastic Four, the Avengers, Captain America, and more… and find out why no one knows his name.
Jack Kirby pours his quintessentially Twentieth Century life into his comics, only to make the fateful mistake that sends him into obscurity while his creations become known to every person on Earth. Get inside the history of the man behind so many of your favourite characters, and discover that Jack was just as colourful, and as complicated, as any of his superheroes.
Robert Klein stars as artist Jack Kirby, having done amazing work at Theatre Calgary in King Lear and A Christmas Carol and in the title role of the Shakespeare Company’s production of Titus Andronicus. David LeReany stars as Stan Lee, the Marvel spokesman. David has worked throughout Calgary and Alberta, notably on the locally-filmed acclaimed show Fargo. They join Cheryl Hutton herself acclaimed for her recent work in Lunchbox Theatre’s Book Club, Cam Ascroft (from Vertigo Theatre’s The Mousetrap) and Justin Michael Carriere, who recently performed in the acclaimed Fight or Flight with Verb Theatre.
King Kirby asks the question: What happens when an artist doesn’t own his own legacy? Can he ever get it back?
