My Accomplice presents A Show About Superheroes

My Accomplice presents A Show About Superheroes

My Accomplice, winners of the Best Theatre at the 2013 Dunedin Fringe Awards bring back a case of the funnies in their latest comedy spectacle, A Show About Superheroes. From Tuesday 13 - Saturday 17 May, the super stars of the Wellington theatre scene will take to the BATS stage to show off their super funny powers in a story of the ups and downs of being a superhero.

Will Captain Ashley Smash with her unbelievable powers of super strength, Cyborg Rob Bot with the powers of… Cyborg, and The Yellow Fury with his supreme martial arts skills be able to defeat Dr. Murder Bailey - an evil super genius who’s determined to crack open the earth? Or will these super heroes end up super dead?

A Show About Superheroes is a spin off from the beloved My Accomplice trilogy of A Play About Love, A Play About Space and A Play About Fear, brought to you especially for the Comedy Festival. This time the accomplices are back to create a superhero story to rival The Avengers but with no theatrics to hide behind. There will be epic slow motion battles, evil villains, explosions, punchy one-liners and maybe even a dance number…

The theatre collective My Accomplice was formed in late 2009 by Hannah Banks, Uther Dean and Paul Waggott upon completion of their BAs at Victoria University. The three have been involved in numerous shows and have worked with some of Wellington's most exciting young theatre makers. They’re also really funny.

Werewolf: Katniss Joins The News Team

From the outset, the Hunger Games series has dwelt obsessively on the ways that media images infiltrate our public and personal lives... From that grim starting point, Mockingjay Part One takes the process a few stages further. There is very little of the film that does not involve the characters (a) being on screens (b) making propaganda footage to be screened and (c) reacting to what other characters have been doing on screens.
