Mr. Burns: A Post Electric Play

Overview

Mr. Burns, A post electric play examines how the pop culture of one era might evolve into the mythology of another. After an unspecified global catastrophe has caused the collapse of civilization, a group of survivors share a campfire and begin to piece together "The Simpsons" episode "Cape Feare" entirely from memory. Seven years later, this and other snippets of pop culture have become the live entertainment of a post-apocalyptic society, desperately trying to hold onto its past. Seventy-five years later, these are the myths and legends from which new forms of performance are created.

Recommended for Ages 13 and Up.
