A captivating, dark comedy from award-winning writer and director Mary Swan about what it means to be a woman over forty, set in the world of superheroes.
This ever-relevant show follows the story of Amanda Adams, 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. Amanda’s work examines the interaction of humans and bears as they relate to resource-extraction industries and urban expansion.
Oh… and Amanda is 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.
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.
Feeling empowered and inspired , the words “I will be heard, I will take up space and I am not going to be silent” ring true even as I left the theatre.
