Reruns of your favourite sitcom like you’ve never seen before!
This play with music is a dark comedy that begins after an apocalyptic event has left the world void of electricity. Every moment a struggle for survival, people turn to storytelling for entertainment to distract them from the cataclysmic horrors they have endured. Set over the course of 75 years, Mr. Burns explores how stories and myths evolve over time all while recounting the adventures of the most famous family on TV, the Simpsons.
Mr. Burns, a post-electric play is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc.
