LOS ANGELES PREMIERE! After the collapse of civilization, a group of survivors keep the spark of human spirit alive by telling stories around a campfire. As the years wear on, these stories expand into the realm of legend and myth. At turns sidesplitting and bone-chilling, Mr. Burns also features an unusual approach for the Fools: each act will be staged in a different theater space in the Broadwater complex, transporting the audience as we search for the light. Performing in the Broadwater Black Box, Second Stage and Mainstage.

Reception follows the opening night show on Friday, October 13

"...both scary and sweet, funny but dead serious, unique and wonderfully theatrical." -TIME Magazine

"...makes us appreciate anew the profound value of storytelling in and of itself." -The New York Times

"Anne Washburn's hypnotic, sly and fiendishly insinuating Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play... does the improbable: It makes the end of civilization seem like the perfect time to create glowing objects of wonder and beauty." -Time Out New York

Friday, October 20: DONATE WHAT YOU CAN. It's "Pay What You Can" with a twist! Half of all proceeds for this performance will be donated to Direct Relief, a humanitarian aid organization, active in all 50 states and more than 80 countries, with a mission to improve the health and lives of people affected by poverty or emergencies.
