About Mr. Burns, a post-electric play

When everything we know has been stripped away, we’re always left with a story… After the collapse of civilisation, a group of survivors recount an episode of The Simpsons. Seven years later, this and other snippets of pop culture have become the live entertainment of a post-apocalyptic society which is sincerely trying to hold onto its past. Seventy five years later pop songs, sitcom plots and jingles are the myths and legends from which new forms of performance are created. Chelsea Walker directs Anne Washburn’s imaginative, music-filled dark comedy.
