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.

Proteus’ Artistic Director and CEO, Mary Swan, who wrote and stars in the play says “I’m Super, Thanks is in fact the first in a trilogy of feminist pieces Proteus is producing over the next few years; we have always made work with a feminist perspective and our current season showcases a diversity of those perspectives and experiences. Now more than ever, in the midst of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movement, continuing the conversation around the rights and experiences of all women is vital to everyone.”
