Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play

Poster for Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play.

“Meaning is everywhere. We get Meaning for free, whether we like it or not. Meaningless Entertainment, on the other hand, is actually really hard.”

At a time in the very near future, a small group of people from a variety of places gather around a campfire after the power grid in the country has been permanently destroyed. To keep up their spirits they discuss episodes of "The Simpsons." The time jumps seven years and then seventy-five years and the question becomes, “What happens to a pop culture pushed past the fall of civilization?” A music finale helps answer the question.
