Mr. Burns - A Post-Electric Play
Written by Anne Washburn
Music by Michael Friedman
A co-production with Oklahoma City University's School of Theatre
What will endure when the cataclysm arrives- when the grid falls, society crumbles, and we're faced with the task of rebuidling? Anne Washburn's imaginative dark comedy, one of the most produced new plays in American theatre, propels us forward nearly a century, following a new civilizations 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.
