Mr Burns, a post-electric play

Concert or Performance

15 Feb 2019 to 10 Mar 2019

In the aftermath of an untold apocalyptic event, a group of strangers huddle around a makeshift campfire, distracting themselves by piecing together a half-forgotten episode of their favourite show, The Simpsons. But will pop culture survive in a world without electricity?

Astonishing and disturbing in equal measure, Lightning Jar Theatre is proud to present the Melbourne premiere, directed by John Kachoyan with music direction by Andrew Patterson.

Named by The New York Times as one of the 25 best American plays since Angels in America, Anne Washburn’s darkly comic work is a compelling examination of how the stories we tell make us the people we are.

Mr. Burns, a post-electric play is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Inc.

Mr Burns is part of the 2019 VCE Drama playlist.
