About This Show

What will endure when the cataclysm arrives, when the grid fails, society crumbles, and we’re faced with the task of rebuilding? Anne Washburn’s imaginative dark comedy propels us forward to a post-apocalyptic world, where a group of strangers bond by recreating the infamous “Cape Feare” episode of The Simpsons. From this fortuitous meeting, distant memories of “Marge” and “Homer” become the basis for shaping a new society as the play travels decades into the future. MR. BURNS… is both a marvelous meta-tribute to the iconic first-family of contemporary pop-culture, and a celebration of the power of generational storytelling. Recommended for ages 15+.

(2 hours, includes one 15-minute intermission)
