Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play
What happens to pop culture after the fall of human civilization? What about 7 years after the fall? Or even 75 years? Mr. Burns, a Post-Electric Play, endeavors to find out. After nuclear power plants across the country begin to experience meltdowns, a small group of survivors gather in the woods and try to recount an episode of The Simpsons. Over the course of the play’s three acts and three-quarters of a century timespan, casual storytelling evolves into theater, theater evolves into ritual, and one Simpsons episode evolves into a myth and legend for a post-apocalyptic world.
Starring Keara Barnes, Graham Coffeng, Douglas Ennenberg, Stephanie Izsak, Elizabeth Kirkland Jackman, CJ McGillivray, and Matthew Montgomery

“Anne Washburn’s hypnotic, sly and fiendishly insinuating Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play … does the improbable: It makes the end of civilization seem like the perfect time to create glowing objects of wonder and beauty.” —Time Out New York
