“Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play” at Longstreet Theatre

The University of South Carolina Department of Theatre and Dance presents “Mr. Burns – A Post-Electric Play,” at Longstreet Theatre February 17th – 25th. In Anne Washburn’s ingenious dark comedy, a group of survivors of a near-future global apocalypse has gathered around a campfire to piece together an episode of the television show, The Simpsons, from memory. As time passes, their fireside recollections evolve beyond mere touchstones of the past they remember to become the grand mythology of a new civilization. Tickets $12 – $18.
