Mr. Burns (A Post-Electric Play)

By Anne Washburn

Directed by Jen Uphoff Gray

In a not-so-distant future where the grid has failed, society has crumbled, and memories can no longer be stored on hard drives, a group of survivors bands together to recreate their vanished world through theater, music, and remnants of popular culture. Anne Washburn's imaginative dark comedy takes us on a post-apocalyptic thrill ride to a time when memory is the new currency, and theater is the new social media. Whether you've never seen The Simpsons or you know every episode by heart, you'll enjoy this animated exploration of how the pop culture of one era evolves into the mythology of another.
