Captain Amazing at the Citizens Theatre is a story about the transformative power of fatherhood, everyday acts of courage and how even the invincible aren’t immune to tragedy.
About Captain Amazing
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Have you ever met a superhero? A real superhero?
What if superheroes were all around us, quietly walking the streets, working in offices, or taking their children to school?
Mark, a reticent young man, is impelled into articulacy, action and superherodom by the arrival of his daughter, Emily. You see, some superheroes don’t know they are superheroes until they become fathers.
Captain Amazing tells the story of the transformative power of fatherhood, everyday acts of courage and how even the invincible aren’t immune to tragedy.
Award-winning Alistair McDowall’s funny, inventive and poignant one-man show was showered with glittering reviews after its world premiere at Live Theatre, Newcastle and the 2013 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, receiving a national tour in 2014.
Captain Amazing once again takes flight in a brand new Citizens Theatre production presented in our Circle Studio.
With thanks to the Robertson Trust for their support of Actor Intern Nicholas Ralph.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Captain Amazing are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
