This one-man show depicts the day-to-day life of Britain’s only part-time superhero.
When Emily is born, her crap dad, Mark, has to step up and become Captain Amazing – a hero in her eyes...if no-one else’s.
To Emily, Mark is a real man of steel; beating bad guys, having beers with Batman and protecting the world. In reality, he can barely look after himself, let alone his family.
Captain Amazing is an astonishing monologue that abounds with vulnerability and crackles with invention. Even the invincible aren’t immune to tragedy.
