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.

Extract from the script 'Supertrace'
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!
