A 12-year-old boy wakes shivering in a parking lot, claiming he’s a monstrous world-conquering Dark Lord, banished from his magical home dimension by his White Wizard arch enemy.
The adults mistake “Dark Lord” for “Dirk Lloyd,” concluding he’s an abandoned, disturbed child stuck in a self-protective fantasy. Dirk is placed with a foster family and enrolled in middle school where he faces terrifying new threats: homework, bullies, and the school bus. When Dirk turns out to possess REAL MAGIC, his new family is tested — will Dirk return to his homeworld seeking bloody vengeance, or learn to value human life?
All performances as part of MTFestUK 2023 will be presented in an abridged workshop format, with scripts in hand.
