Mr. Burns, a post-electric play
By Anne Washburn
Score by Michael Friedman
Lyrics by Anne Washburn
Directed by Chase Bringardner
April 12–22, 2018
An apocalyptic event has occurred and the world has lost all electric power. Out of the literal darkness, survivors gather together to tell stories, find loved ones, and create community. In search of a common cultural language, people find solace and sustenance in a certain yellow animated family. Annie Baker’s brilliant play combines music and text to argue for the enduring power of storytelling and the vital role it plays in telling our history and creating our future.
