Summary

What happens to pop culture after the fall of human civilization? What about 7 years after the fall? Or even 75 years? Mr. Burns, a Post-Electric Play, endeavors to find out. When nuclear power plants across the country begin to “go up,” a small group of survivors gather in the woods and begin to recount an episode of The Simpsons. Over the course of the play’s three acts and three-quarters of a century timespan, casual storytelling evolves into theater, theater evolves into ritual, and one Simpsons episode evolves into a myth and legend for a post-apocalyptic world.

Mr. Burns, a post-electric play contains coarse language and violence. Advisory for children 6 - 13 (at parents discretion.) No children under 6 allowed.
