Welcome to the Ticketing Page for SouthWest StageWorks'  production of

'Mr. Burns, a post-electric play'

Book and Lyrics By: Anne Washburn

Music by: Michael Friedman

Directed By: Jamie M. Miller

Performing May 2-4 and 9-11

Anne Washburn’s imaginative dark comedy propels us forward nearly a century, following a new civilization stumbling into its future.

After the collapse of civilization, a group of survivors share a campfire and begin to piece together the plot of "The Simpsons" episode "Cape Feare" entirely from memory. 7 years later, this and other snippets of pop culture (sitcom plots, commercials, jingles, and pop songs) have become the live entertainment of a post-apocalyptic society, sincerely trying to hold onto its past. 75 years later, these are the myths and legends from which new forms of performance are created.

An ode to live theater, and the resilience of Bart Simpson through the ages, Mr. Burns is an animated exploration of how the pop culture of one era might evolve into the mythology of another.

(Runs May 2-11 and is appropriate for ages Middle School and Older for some coarse language and suspenseful situations.)
