The earth is barren, society has collapsed, and America as we know it has come to an end. Gathered around a fire in the woods, a group of dauntless survivors search for meaning in the face of their struggle and discover a shared love in retelling one of the great stories of their time: an episode of The Simpsons. In a darkly comedic mash-up of oral tradition and pop culture, Washburn’s wildly inventive new play asks us to consider life beyond smart phones, Wi-Fi, and social media. A rocking, rollicking musical mythology, Mr. Burns “will leave you dizzy with the scope and dazzle of its ideas.” (The New York Times)
