Theatre Arts

MR BURNS, A POST-ELECTRIC PLAY by Anne Washburn

When: Friday November 20th and Saturday November 21st
Where: Runyan Center's Wilkinson Theatre.

Anne Washburn’s dark comedy explores how storytelling creates community and community creates resilience.  In the aftermath of an unspecified apocalyptic event, a group of survivors bond around a campfire as they attempt to recall an episode of The Simpsons.  Seven years later, they’ve formed a traveling theatre troupe that re-imagines pop culture from the Before Times.  And 75 years after that, a musical re-telling of what is now the legend of Bart Simpson (from the original “Cape Feare” episode of The Simpsons) inspires a post-apocalyptic society with the tale of a mythic hero.

*There will be a limited number of seats available for the live performance in Wilkinson Theatre; there are also a limited number of seats available in Goddard Auditorium for a large screen viewing of the live-streamed performance. Actors and audience members will be masked and each audience member will be seated at an appropriate social distance from other audience members.  

**These performances are only available for Earlham College students, staff and faculty, per Earlham's COVID-19 policy.

Earlham College, an independent, residential college, aspires to provide the highest-quality undergraduate education in the liberal arts and sciences, shaped by the distinctive perspectives of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
