Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play



Event is over.


Tix from $17


Theatre, Comedy

What happens to pop culture after the fall of human civilization? What about 7 years after? Or even 75 years after? Mr. Burns, a Post-Electric Play endeavors to find out.

After nuclear power plants across the country experience meltdowns, a small group of survivors gather in the woods and attempt to remember 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, pop music evolves into ritual, and one particular Simpsons episode evolves into a myth and legend for a post-apocalyptic, post-electric world.

Tickets available through partnership with Theatre Wire.

“Anne Washburn’s hypnotic, sly and fiendishly insinuating Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play …makes the end of civilization seem like the perfect time to create glowing objects of wonder and beauty.” —Time Out New York.
