Mr Burns: A Post-Electric Play

By Anne Washburn

2017

In the not too distant future a nuclear fallout has decimated modern America. A group of survivors band together in an attempt to hold on to what shred of normality they have left, in the only way they know how … by retelling the “Cape Feare” episode of The Simpsons.

Rough Magic SEEDS present Mr Burns: A Post-Electric Play in an innovative new production, delivered by an exciting new generation of theatre makers. This razor sharp dark-comedy imagines a future where, when all seems lost, America’s favorite family might just hold the key to our survival.

Performed in the Project Arts Centre, Dublin, from 30th November to 9th December 2017 as part of the Rough Magic SEEDS programme.
