Laser Beak Man
Tim Sharp, the creator of Laser Beak Man, was diagnosed with Autism when he was three years old. Doctors explained to his mother Judy that he would never speak and told her to put him away and forget about him. But Judy was determined to find a way to communicate with her son and introduced him to drawing. When he was eleven, Tim invented Laser Beak Man.
Power City is the most beautiful city in the world, clean, pure, perfect; but not by accident.
Local hero Laser Beak Man works hard to keep it that way. Drawing energy from the underground Magna Crystals that power the City his beak can shoot lasers that turn bad to good. That is until Peter Bartman, evil genius, and Laser Beak Man’s estranged childhood friend, steals the Magna Crystals using the Thriller Driller. Robbed of his superpowers, Laser Beak Man must find a way to stop his oldest nemesis from destroying Power City. In a story jam-packed with the trademark humour and visual puns that come from his literal interpretation of language, Laser Beak Man is a new visual theatre work by the Dead Puppet Society and Tim Sharp that explodes with colour and energy.
