Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play

  • by Anne Washburn
  • directed by Jeremy Aluma
  • What would you hold sacred if everything you knew was destroyed? In three acts, Mr. Burns, a Post-Electric Play is the story of survival and reinvention in a post-apocalyptic world. What starts as a group of friends casually recounting a Simpson’s episode morphs—over the course of more than 80 years—into a completely new form of storytelling.
