SuperHero is an original play about a boy who fantasizes about having superpowers. This coming-of-age story is inspired by playwright Ian Eaton's experiences of navigating strict West Indian parents, girls, and Catholic school amidst the backdrop of 1980's Manhattanville Projects in Harlem. After a tragic event, Ian's fantasies of being a "super" man are shattered when a neighborhood bully forces him to confront the kind of man he wants to become.

The creative team for SuperHero includes Lawrence Moten (scenic design), Amina Alexander (lighting design), Meghan Healey (costume design) and Ronvé O'Daniel (sound design). The Production Stage Manager is Hanako Rodriguez. Casting by Eisenberg/Beans Casting.
