Mr Burns: A Post-Electric Play
by Anne Washburn

Every story ends on a dark and raging river

In the not too distant future a nuclear fallout has decimated modern America. A group of survivors band together in an attempt to hold on to what shred of normality they have left, in the only way they know how … by retelling the “Cape Feare” episode of The Simpsons.

Rough Magic SEEDS present Mr Burns: A Post-Electric Play in an innovative new production, delivered by an exciting new generation of theatre makers. This razor sharp dark-comedy imagines a future where, when all seems lost, America’s favorite family might just hold the key to our survival.

 


Shadows to Light
by Lee Coffey

A rehearsed reading of a new play by Lee Coffey, presented as part of the Rough Magic SEEDS Showcase 2017.

Two hitmen, Max and Axel, are hiding out in an abandoned house after a job goes wrong. Surrounded and with no way out they start to talk. As tensions run high both men begin to wonder, are they here by chance or did something bring them here?

Shadows to Light blurs the line between this world and the next. Someone is going to have to answer for their sins, but who?

Rough Magic SEEDS is a two-year development programme for Irelands most exciting emerging theatre artists and has geminated some of the brightest innovators in Irish theatre.
