Super Awesome World is a brand new autobiographical theatre show about video games that invites the audience to join Amy Conway as allies in her fight against depression. A performance that explores, through the prism of gaming, what depression is like and what it is like to fight it. The show will ask the audience to become Amy’s fellow adventurers in an interactive experience that asks difficult questions and quests for elusive sparks of joy in the deep dark multi-user dungeons of the soul.
