Camilla Whitehill's Mr Incredible is a one-man play about modern love and old-fashioned entitlement. It was first produced by Longsight Theatre at the Underbelly Cowgate, Edinburgh Festival Fringe, on 4 August 2016. An earlier version of the play was first performed at VAULT Festival, London, on 10 February 2016.

The play is a dramatic monologue spoken by a 31-year-old character called Adam, whose four-year relationship with Holly, five years his junior, has just ended. Adam describes how the couple met, came to live together and then drifted apart. He wanted children, but Holly wanted to develop a career as a journalist and to seize the opportunities available to young women in the modern world.

The Longsight Theatre production was directed by Sarah Meadows and designed by Justin Nardella and Catherine Morgan. It was performed by Alistair Donegan.
