Obsidian Theater presents Mr. Burns: A Post-Electric Play
How does The Simpsons become almost a religion, 75 years after a global catastrophe? Obsidian Theater answers that question with Anne Washburn's Mr. Burns: A Post-Electric Play.
In this dark comedy, a group of survivors try to recount an episode of The Simpsons after a global catastrophe. Fast forward seven years and this same group is performing Simpsons' episodes, complete with commercials. Seventy-five years later and The Simpsons is a now familiar myth that has become almost religion-like. Nominated for the Drama League Award of an Outstanding Production of a Broadway or Off-Broadway Play, Mr. Burns: A Post-Electric Play is a dizzying journey through a post-apocalyptic world.
