What if your phone was never going to work again and all you had left was The Simpsons? What will endure when the grid fails, society crumbles, and we’re faced with the task of rebuilding?
Anne Washburn’s outrageous, enthusiastically acclaimed dark comedy propels us forward nearly a century, following a new civilization stumbling into its future. A meta-tribute 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.
