The Invisible Scarlet O'Neil
A WORLD PREMIERE FROM BABES WITH BLADES THEATRE COMPANY!
By Barbara Lhota
(Based on the comic strip by Russell Stamm)
Director: Leigh Barrett
Violence Design: Libby Beyreis
A mishap in her father's lab gave Scarlet O'Neil the power of invisibility - a power she promised him she'd never use. But Daddy never knew there'd be days like these....
It's the 1940s, and Dr. O'Neil's ex-lab assistant Evanna Keil is desperate to perfect her mind-controlling Ruby Red Lipstick before selling it to the KGB. The ensuing mayhem threatens everything Dr. O'Neil worked for, and everything Scarlet holds dear. Can Scarlet save her deceased father's reputation, his scientific collaborators, AND their military secrets, plus her kidnapped landlady, a young prodigy, a small dog, the gals at the City News, and all of Chicago - if not the world?
THE INVISIBLE SCARLET O'NEIL to the rescue!
Widely recognized as America's first female superhero comic strip, Russell Stamm's "The Invisible Scarlet O'Neil" ran in the Chicago Times from 1940-56.
