About the show:

Mr. Burns, a post-electric play
January 20-February 4, 2023
By Anne Washburn
Directed by Abigail McNeely

As we enter the world of Anne Washburn’s ingenious dark comedy, a group of survivors of a near-future global apocalypse has gathered around a campfire to piece together an episode of the television show The Simpsons from memory. As time passes, their fireside recollections evolve beyond mere touchstones of the past they remember to become the grand mythology of a new civilization. A paean to live theater, and 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. A play with music.

Available roles:

The director is dedicated to casting a non-homogenous group of storytellers. All actors will sing in Acts II and III. Most characters in this play are written with she/her or he/him pronouns; however, our casting seeks to be as inclusive as possible and we invite gender non-conforming, genderqueer, transgender and non-binary actors to submit for the roles they most identify with. There is also no race/ethnicity written in the text of the play specific to any of the characters, and we are seeking all races and ethnicities.
