"Mr. Burns" begins in the very near future, after an unspecified apocalyptic event has devastated the country. Without electric power, survivors huddle fireside recalling their favorite episodes of the Simpsons.
The 2nd act is set 7 years later, as performance troupes travel the wastelands to entertain survivors with their recollections of classic television shows, commercials, and chart-topping hits, even as they battle for survival.
In the final act, some 75 years later, our contemporary pop culture has become the heightened myth and performance of the post-apocalyptic future.
