Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play
About Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play
The power grid is down. Providence is deserted. Boston is a mess. And all of Pennsylvania… but Stamford seems ok?
The earth is barren, society has collapsed, and America as we know it has come to an end. Gathered around a fire in the woods, a group of dauntless survivors search for meaning in the face of their struggle and discover a shared love in retelling one of the great stories of their time: an episode of "The Simpsons." In a darkly comedic mash-up of oral tradition and pop culture, Washburn’s wildly inventive new play asks us to consider life beyond smart phones, Wi-Fi, and social media.
