Superhero Clubhouse is a New York-based collective of artists and scientists working at the intersection of environmentalism and theater. We create fictional performances rooted in complex environmental questions, practice ecological production, and collaborate across disciplines and communities to enact a thriving society. We believe theater is an essential tool for evolving our consciousness in the face of global environmental crises.
Big Green Theater 7.0
Our annual eco-playwriting program for Brooklyn fourth- and fifth-graders is in full swing! From January through March, students interact with environmental experts and write plays inspired by climate justice. Learn more about the program here. And don't miss the culminating production of student plays, April 28-30 at The Bushwick Starr!
PLUTO (no longer a play)
PLUTO is an allegory about extinction... or it used to be, maybe. Three humans attempt to give a presentation about the remains of a play that no longer exists. The fragments seem to suggest the story of a unicorn, a hunter, and a wizard, all struggling to adapt to a rapidly changing world. Facing similar dilemmas, the three humans reenact their findings, searching for hope among the bones. Premieres May 11-June 3 at The Brick.
