A Queensland premiere, Mr. Burns, a post-electric play by Anne Washburn, is an imaginative comedy that propels us forward in an intoxicating and sobering vision of an American future. After society collapses, a group of survivors gather around a campfire and begin to retell the plot of “Cape Fear,” from the comical TV show, The Simpsons.

Through this breadth of imagination, “we are reminded of how ordinary life can seem in moments of extraordinary crisis, of how horror creates its own quotidian routine.” - The New York Times, 2013
