"Broad comic acting is raised to the level of high art…deliriously funny." —NY Times

"Fantastic ...filled to burst with off-kilter humor, boisterous acting, and a sweet modern message." Letitia Carelock, Showbiz NoFlo

"Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike is entertaining stuff indeed."Ron Cunningham, Gainesville Sun

Regret and sibling rivalry fan the flames of laughter in this wickedly wonderful Chekhovian mash-up from Tony and Obie Award winning playwright Christopher Durang. Melancholy turns into mayhem when Vanya and his sister Sonia—along with their clairvoyant housekeeper Cassandra—are paid a surprise visit by their Hollywood star sibling Masha and her twenty something boy toy Spike. Will Vanya and Sonia ever find happiness? Will Masha sell the Bucks County farmhouse out from under them? And will Spike ever put his pants on?

Mr. Burns, a Post-Electric Play



Buy Tickets

February 18 - March 15

by Anne Washburn

"The play is both scary and sweet, funny but dead serious, unique and wonderfully theatrical." —Time Magazine

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

The theatrical event of the season! In this dark comedy set 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.
