Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play
Wright Hall Main Stage Theatre
Imagine that in the wake of a post-apocalyptic event, a group of survivors gathers together and recalls the classic “Cape Feare” episode from television’s “The Simpsons.” From their recollections, this group evolves the tale into the foundation of a new theatrical and musical artform – complete with commercials. Playwright Anne Washburn has taken this concept to hilarious heights in her wickedly funny “Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play,” billed as a dark comedy with music.
Featuring music by Michael Friedman and lyrics by Washburn, the innovative contemporary work will be presented by the UC Davis Department of Theatre and Dance in Wright Hall’s Main Theatre Thursday through Saturday May 19-21 and 26-28 at 8 p.m. and Sundays 22 and 29 at 2 p.m.
Directed by visiting artist, Mindy Cooper.
