From the director of the critically-acclaimed Becoming Hattie comes a new solo satire on the
depiction of women in popular culture.

Amanda Adams is the European lead for the Bear Specialist Group, set up by the World Species Survival Commission. Her research focuses on the effects of timber harvesting in Canada on the habitat and demography of grizzly bears. It also examines the interaction of humans and bears as they relate to resource-extraction industries and urban expansion. Oh… and she’s the wife of a superhero. But you probably already knew that. That’s probably why you’re here. That’s probably what you care about.

I’m Super Thanks is a new solo show from award-winning writer and director Mary Swan. Using dark wit and biting satire, I’m Super, Thanks follows the experiences of the wife of a superhero, exploring the representation of women in popular culture – from disposable love interests in films and comic books and the media’s portrayal of the wives and girlfriends of famous male figures, to the ways in which older women are made invisible.

'‘these words are making up for lost time having not been said before… they unite women” EXEUNT on Becoming Hattie, 2016
