I found her a new world. I filled it with people like her. People who, with very little prodding, revealed themselves to also be in need of an escape, a fresh start. A purpose… It was almost easy. That should've been my first clue that I'd gotten it all wrong.

An original, heartfelt adventure for all ages, Supertopia centers around a group of remarkable, super-powered people in a new land where heroes aren't unique, and no one is in need of saving. Accountable to no one but themselves, the nine settlers of Supertopia struggle with the responsibility of creating a better world and the impossible, incredible choices that come with great power. Everyday Inferno's fifth annual free Central Park production imagines the lush, isolated beauty of Summit Rock as an uncharted wilderness, full of possibility. Join us once more for an astonishing summer evening, as we build new worlds in our own shared backyard.
