SYNOPSIS:
What will endure when the cataclysm arrives – when the grid fails, society crumbles, and we’re faced with the task of rebuilding? After the collapse of civilization, a group of survivors share a campfire and begin to piece together the plot of The Simpsons episode “Cape Feare” entirely from memory shortly after the catastrophe, then examines the way the story has changed seven years after that, and finally, 75 years later – when the inhabitants of Springfield have become the stuff of legend and the basis of a new world’s rituals. Anne Washburn’s imaginative dark comedy propels us forward nearly a century, following a new civilization stumbling into its future. A paean to live theatre, and to the resilience of Bart Simpson through the ages, Mr. Burns is an exploration of how the pop culture of one era might evolve into the mythology of another. Winner of the 2015 Whiting Award. Nominee for the 2014 Outstanding Production of a Broadway or Off-Broadway Play Drama League Award.

“… you’re likely to feel… exhilarated from all the layers of time and thought you’ve traveled through.” – New York Times.

“Downright Brilliant. When was the last time you met a new play that was so smart it made your head spin? Get ready to reel…” – Ben Brantley, New York Times.
