Mr. BURNS: A post-electric play

  • Evert B. Person Theatre (map)

A nuclear event has destroyed all power plants and collapsed the electric grid. In the post-doomsday wasteland, ragged bands of survivors gather together for protection. Trying to forget how scared they are, they speak of anything but the tragedy, conjuring up memories of old Tv shows, pop culture, cartoons. When someone (mis)remembers a Simpsons episode (you’ll want to re-watch “Cape Feare” S5 E2), a new performance ritual is born. Mr. Burns is a bizarre, funny, bleak, and wonderful exploration of the power of storytelling and the origins of civilization.
