Sally wants to be as beautiful as the models in advertisements in magazines – Simon wants to be as confident as the men in soap-operas – and Phil wants to be as clever as the TV scientists. All three are in despair!
But then in a dream-sequence the three of them are transported into a television-world in which their wishes are granted. They find themselves in the clinic-soap-opera 'Love in White Coats'. Sally becomes Nurse Sally Shapeley, the most beautiful nurse in the hospital. Simon becomes Dr. Simon Hunkwell, the romantic leading male. And Phil becomes Sir Philip Forceps-Prat, the most brilliant surgeon in the world.
A patient is brought into the hospital – it’s a matter of life and death! But then the dream quickly turns into a nightmare. Do the three teenagers really want to live in this superficial plastic world?


Success Story is a light-hearted comedy about identity, the influence of the media on young people’s ideas and ambitions.

Phil: Girls are like buses – if you miss one, another one will come along soon. Here, I’ll choose one for you. Take that one there.
Simon: But that’s a boy!
Phil: No not him, you idiot. The one behind him.
Simon: I couldn’t.
Phil: Oh come on Simon, pull yourself together. Now begin by looking cool.
Simon: Like this?
Phil: Ye-…er, no, not quite like that. Let’s sort your clothes out a bit. That’s better. Now, relax. Think cool. Walk cool. Now walk slowly towards her. Right. And now look her straight in the eyes and say “Hello gorgeous!”
Simon: Hello gorgeous!
Phil: Well done!
Simon: But she laughed at me! It’s no good. I haven’t got what you’ve got. She laughed at me! They all laughed at me!
Phil: That’s a good sign. They like a man with a bit of humour…

Tracey has super-powers – she can fly through space at million times the speed of light, and she knows everything. But everywhere she goes – at school, in the job-centre, or in her first office-job – men are unable to take her seriously because she is a woman.
Even when she saves the world from terrorism or heroically defends the universe against the appalling Quark of Brolth, her main problems have to do with the sexist prejudices of her male opponents. And when she comes to look for a boyfriend, her difficulties seem insurmountable!

Supertrace is a lively comedy that uses fantasy and comic-book humour to make fun of sexist stereotyping. The accompanying Teachers’ Pack includes exercises and ideas for discussion about feminism and the role of women in different societies in the world today.

Tracey seems like an ordinary girl:
Sweet and fragile, pretty as a pearl.
But underneath this innocent face
Tracey is really SUPERTRACE!

She flies through space at the speed of light,
Conquering evil, and making wrongs right.
Villains and monsters shake with fear
When they learn that SUPERTRACE is here!

a letter Dear Jane,
I don't know how to write this letter. You will have noticed by now that I haven't come home tonight. I'm not going to be coming home again. I've fallen in love with someone I met at work, and she and I are starting a new life together.
I know this will hurt you terribly, and I am very sorry. As you know, things haven't been so good between us recently, so perhaps it's for the best. I wish you and Gillian a happy life without me.
