Written by Anne Washburn and directed by Jayme Kilburn, Mr. Burns begins with eight friends gathered around a fire trying to recall the plot of The Simpsons episode Cape Feare.

Seven years after the first scene, the same group has created a pop culture theatre troupe in the remains of a decaying civilization. are available at schwartztickets.com and at the Box Office, 430 College Avenue, from Monday thru Saturday, 1-8pm.
