12 Peers Theater presents:

Mr. Burns, a post-electric play
by Anne Washburn
August 3-20

Directed by Vince Ventura
Featuring Cassidy Adkins, Sara Ashley Fisher, Matt Henderson, Everett Lowe, Gayle Pazerski, Brittany Tague, Maura Underwood, and Joe York

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.

A paean 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.

Mr. Burns, a post-electric play runs August 3-20. All shows at The Studio Theatre at the University of Pittsburgh Cathedral of Learning, 4200 Fifth Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15213. Thursday-Saturday, 8 pm, Sunday, 2pm. There is a special Monday night performance on August 14 at 8 pm. Tickets can be reserved online at artful.ly/store/events/10627
