A journey into the realms of heroism and imagination.
When life gets too difficult, it’s time to create a new superhero. Super Discount is the story of a champion cunningly disguised as a young man, humorously defying the insidious undercurrents of daily life.
Following Back to Back Theatre’s internationally acclaimed Ganesh Versus the Third Reich, comes the company’s next excursion to the limits of theatrical wonder. Super Discount is a provocative new work that dares you to think about what it means to be different, questions our idea of heroism and, of course, helps you unearth your own superpowers.*
