WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

As contemporary America comes to an end, people are facing a future without power. Exactly how people will survive is unclear, and no one knows who will eventually rise to the top. As a episode of 'The Simpsons' is recalled by some of the survivors, we see how it is repeated through the generations and eventually becomes part of their mythology. Mr Burns examines the relationship between pop and high culture and asks if the stories we tell make us the people what we are.

Robert Icke directs the European premiere of Anne Washburn's 'post electric play' which originally opened in New York last year.
