Mr. Burns, a Post Electric Play: by Anne Washburn
Director: Lauren Caldwell 1st rehearsal: Jan 30 Run: Feb 15 – March 15
In this dark comedy in three acts set “now”, 7 years from now, and 100 years in the future, a new civilization uses current pop culture references including TVs longest-running hit show THE SIMPSONS, to frame its present. Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play explores what will endure when the apocalypse arrives—when the grid fails, society crumbles, and we’re faced with the task of rebuilding.
