Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play
by Vortex Summer Youth Theatre

Jul. 29 - Aug. 06

The VORTEX Summer Youth Theatre presents Mr. Burns, a post-electric play, a dark American comedy by Anne Washburn. Mr. Burns unfolds the story of a group of survivors of a global catastrophe (!) recalling and retelling The Simpsons' “Cape Feare” episode. The play begins in the immediate future and then moves 7 years and finally 70 years into the future as cultural mythology evolves into cult-like engagement and a grand musical. 

Score by Michael Friedman
Lyrics by Anne Washburn
Directed by Jennifer Jennings. 

The VORTEX is thrilled to present an ensemble of youth and adult guest artists in an extraordinary, long-awaited production. This award-winning play originally premiered in 2012 at Wooly Mammoth Theatre Company, Washington D.C. and then Playwrights Horizons, New York City. 

Now in its 30th year, Summer Youth Theatre’s award-winning tuition-free program features a dynamic cast of teenage performers and adult guest artists.
