Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play
April 18 – May 5
by Anne Washburn
The electric grid has failed, society has crumbled, and, to stave off the darkness, a group of survivors gathers around a fire and recreate their fallen world through the brave act of storytelling. Out of the darkness, they find connection and, with that, light as they piece together a new society from the memories of what’s been lost. A testament to human resilience and a love letter to live theater with music, spectacle and an unlikely hero (named Bart.) MR BURNS is a bold, touching, innovative dramatic experience that celebrates the human spirit and the necessity of telling stories in the dark.
