SUPERHEROES

by Mark Rogers

In Thirroul, Emily sits on the beach with her sort-of-ex-sort-of-not boyfriend, trying to figure out how to deal with her unwanted pregnancy.

In Mostar, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Jana goes out to get groceries and slams into the day-to-day reality of the European refugee crisis.

Superheroes is a play about two women on opposite sides of the world living small lives in a time of big politics. It’s a play that parallels two very different lives to ask questions about what it means to take responsibility for your actions, and what it means to change your mind.

This play won the 2019 Griffin Award and the 2019 Patrick White Award. A chamber piece for three actors, it’s a lyrical, inventive and deeply humane story from an exciting new voice. It’s a play full of small surprises, not the least of which is finding a young Australian playwright who deeply believes in community, compassion and the essential good within humanity—despite what the daily news would have us think.

This title appears in:

Griffin Award for New Australian Playwriting (2019 winner)

Patrick White Playwrights Award (2019 winner)
