Mr. Burns, a post-electric play
An unknown global disaster has struck and the electrical grid is down: our favorite TV shows, music, and devices have crumbled—how will life go on? For one group of tenacious survivors, sitting around a fire and reminiscing about The Simpsons proves to be the greatest escape from despair. Miraculously, from their collective memories, a new industry struggles to be born: a theatrical re-creation of the digital culture we can’t possibly live without. Anne Washburn’s Mr. Burns, a post-electric play, is a rocking, rollicking, scary good time that leaves you questioning how you’d make sense of the world if all that connected you to the virtual world disappeared.
This production contains strong language, violence, gunshots, strobe, and the use of theatrical haze.
Mr. Burns, a post electric play was presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
