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 by Anne Washburn, 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.
