In a post-apocalyptic world an episode of “The Simpsons” could be the answer to humanity.

(Appropriate for ages 12 and older)

From the Samuel French Website:
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 nearly a century, following a new civilization stumbling into its future. A paean to live theater, and to the resilience of Bart Simpson through the ages, Mr. Burns is an animated exploration of how the pop culture of one era might evolve into the mythology of another.

Mr. Burns, a post-electric play is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
