Sometimes it's not as simple as saving the day...

Supertopia is a play about what happens when what we owe to other people conflicts with what we owe to ourselves. A group of people who could easily be described as incredible find themselves in a situation where super is normal and nobody's in desperate need of a hero. Answerable to no one but themselves, the citizens of Supertopia must come to terms with their abilities and decide to what degree what they can do determines who they are.
