PROJECT SYNOPSIS

Mr. Burns: A Post-Electric Play (by Anne Washburn): America has fallen, the power grids are gone, humanity is on the edge of extinction and the world is ending… now what? In the not-too-distant future, a group of survivors huddle around a campfire trying to retell an episode of The Simpsons from memory. As the years pass, this episode and other snippets of pop culture become the live entertainment of a post-apocalyptic society, sincerely trying to hold onto its past.
