Mr. Burns, a post-electric play

By Anne Washburn
Directed by Bill Gillett

October 10-12, 7:30pm
October 13, 2:30pm

After the collapse of civilization, a group of survivors share a campfire and begin to piece together the plot of “The Simpsons” episode “Cape Feare” entirely from memory. Seven years later, this and other snippets of pop culture (sitcom plots, commercials, jingles, and pop songs) have become the live entertainment of a post-apocalyptic society, sincerely trying to hold onto its past. A tribute to live theater, and the resilience of Bart Simpson through the ages, Mr. Burns is an animated exploration of how the pop culture of one era might evolve into the mythology of another. This imaginative, dark comedy propels us forward nearly a century, following a new civilization stumbling into its future.
