CMU presents Mesa Experimental Theatre production of Mr. Burns, a post-electric play

CMU Theatre will present its last play of the season, Mr. Burns, a post-electric play, in the Moss Performing Arts Center Mesa Experimental Theatre April 6-14.

After an apocalyptic event, survivors comfort themselves by recalling the plot of an episode of The Simpsons from memory. Seven years later, the story has become live entertainment, complete with commercials and pop songs. Finally, 75 years later, the story is a legend that inspires new forms of theatrical performance.

This imaginative dark comedy, written by Anne Washburn, brilliantly explores how the pop culture of our era could evolve into the mythology of another and points out the the importance of story. When everything is gone, what remains is our ability to remember and share stories.

Tickets are available online at - seating is limited to 100 tickets per performance.
