Mr. Burns, a Post-Electric Play
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.
The Two Musketeers
April 8 - May 3
by Jon Jory
A World Premiere! When a small acting company eliminates one Musketeer from their production of The Three Musketeers due to budget constraints, the rest of the cast must sally forth bravely with only two. The classic tale of d’Artagnan and his sword-fighting friends is presented with hilarity, romance, wit, and derring-do to spare. This high-comedy adaptation is a witty send-up of Alexandre Dumas’ beloved adventure.
