Mr. Burns: A Post-Electric Play
In a not-too-distant future, survivors of a catastrophic destruction of the electrical grid huddle together and seek comfort in recalling their favorite episode of The Simpsons. 20 years into the future, the episode (in altered form) has become a staple of a touring theatre company in a post-electric world that recalls the glory days of a phenomenon of the past called “television.” 75 years into the future, Bart, Homer and, of course, Mr. Burns have become mythic figures, whose story has grown to reflect a world both very different from, and similar to, our wired world of today. David is Associate Music Director and keyboardist for the production.
