Written by Anne Washburn

A co-production with Oklahoma City University's School of Theatre

What will endure when the cataclysm arrives- when the grid falls, society crumbles, and we're faced with the task of rebuidling? Anne Washburn's imaginative dark comedy, one of the most produced new plays in American theatre, propels us forward nearly a century, following a new civilizations stumbling into its future. A paean to live theatre, and to the resilience of Bart Simpson through the ages, Mr. Burns is an exploration of how the pop culture of one era might evolve into the mythology of another.

Taylor Mac's dark comedy is the story of a 21st century prodigal son. A veteran with PTSD responds to his father's stroke by coming home to help care for him, but finds himself in the aftermath of another regime overthrow. His mother (formerly a battered wife) and his newly transitioned transgender sibling are finally thriving in the household that used to be ruled by dad. HIR (a gender pronoun pronounced "here") is a metaphor for both gender and place, and the play will have audiences crying in laughter and sympathy as they attempt to discover if we can all adapt to live here, now.

"Mac [...] isn't so much remaking the world in his own image as he is addressing subjects that remain, remarkably, underplayed on the American stage: what bodies mean and what stories women are allowed to tell or perform." - The New Yorker

"A crackling production of a remarkable, audacious, uproarious black comedy with a daring combination of realism and madcap absurdity." - Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
