From the author of Inside/Out and Candid. Billy is nine when he finds out that he's adopted. Feeling betrayed, Billy retreats into a world of his own, and builds his own Fortress of Solitude, modeling his life after the most famous orphan ever, Superman. His only ally, friend, and sometime enemy, is Kim, who watches Billy as they both grow up through high school, and who is frustrated by Billy's determination to need no one but himself. Act I tells Billy's story. In Act II, we hear Kim's side of their relationship, see her struggle to make contact with Billy, even when Billy feels she, too, has betrayed him, and turns on her. When Billy is finally forced to admit his need, it is a shattering moment, but with Kim's help, the pieces of his life can be put back together to build something new and strong, based on mutual need and friendship. Powerful, challenging roles for teen actors.
