Adam is single. He doesn't like it. He misses Holly. He deserves Holly. Doesn't he? 

Camilla Whitehill’s funny, dark and brutal one-man play about modern love and old-fashioned entitlement; a deeply unsettling and intelligent dramatic monologue that plays with ambiguities.  

Mr Incredible was originally produced at the 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe by Longsight Theatre, following its preview run earlier that year at VAULT Festival, London. 

Press reviews: 

“Powerful... [an] acute comment on male privilege over women's bodies and choices” 

The Play's the Thing 

“A cleverly constructed, engrossing and chilling piece of drama… an absolute triumph of new writing”
