Details

Mr. Burns, a post-electric play, is a dark comedy with a touch of insanity; after the collapse of civilization, a group of survivors begin to piece together the plot of “The Simpsons” episode “Cape Feare” 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. Seventy-five years later, these are the myths and legends from which new forms of performance are created. An exciting exploration of how the pop culture of one era might evolve into the mythology of another. Written by Anne Washburn, directed by Tricia Rodley and winner of the 2015 Whiting Award. No show on Sunday, June 11.
