Mr. Burns, a post-electric play
8:00 pm
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. 7 years later, this and other snippets of pop culture (sitcom plots, commercials, jingles, and pop songs) have become the live entertainment of a post-apocalyptic society, sincerely trying to hold onto its past. 75 years later, these are the myths and legends from which new forms of performance are created. Mr. Burns, a post-electric play turns an eye to the communal creation of myth by exploring a post-apocalyptic landscape where yesterday's pop culture (an episode of "The Simpsons" pieced together entirely from memory) is rehashed as a myth of perseverance.
