The world as we know it has come to an end.
Electricity is a memory. The survivors gaze into the fire and conjure up memories of Simpsons episodes to entertain themselves. Seven years later, these stories have become a primitive entertainment industry. Seventy-five years later still, the stories have evolved into an elaborate mythology.
By turns harrowing and hilarious, Anne Washburn’s riveting play explores the power of storytelling and asking what happens when media becomes myth — and myth becomes something more.
“Downright brilliant” —The New York Times.
For mature audiences.
