Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play
Anne Washburn’s dark comedy premiered in 2012 and its off-Broadway run played at Playwrights’ Horizon – after a global cataclysm, a group of performers retell the Simpson’s episode “Cape Feare” in three different time periods moving into the future as it becomes a new American Myth.
This dark comedy propels us forward 75 years after an apocalyptic event and follows a group of survivors who attempt to piece together an episode of a popular TV show. Explore how pop culture evolves from one era to the next.
