Description

Civilization as we know it has collapsed. There is no electricity and a nuclear meltdown is imminent. People scavenge to live, desperate to find their loved ones. A band of survivors huddle around a campfire and began to piece together an episode of The Simpsons entirely from memory. 7 years later, this and other snippets of pop culture have become the live entertainment of a post-apocalyptic society sincerely trying to hold onto its past. And 75 years after that, these stories have transformed to meet the needs of a different audience, giving birth to new forms of culture and offering humankind the inspiration to keep going. Anne Washburn's imaginative dark comedy Mr. Burns is part apocalyptic tale, part musical, part homage to live theater, and part ode to The Simpsons. The play propels us forward nearly a century, following a new civilization stumbling into its future. Oglethorpe University Theatre is proud to present the Atlanta premiere of this unique and thought-provoking play.
