Theater Wit presents Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play by Anne Washburn, music by Michael Friedman, and directed by Jeremy Wechsler.

After life as we know it has ended, small bands of survivors band together to keep the pilot light of civilization burning. Their path to redemption is as unexpected as it is inevitable.

This unique and prescient theatrical experience is one of the most popular shows in Theater Wit’s history. Don’t miss it! Playing now through October 31st!

“THREE AND 1/2 STARS. A very distinct kind of thrill, the one that kicks in when you have absolutely no idea where a play is going, except that it is not likely to be any place you recall being before in a theater. Wherever you land on the “Simpsons” obsession scale, you should know that “Mr. Burns” is very funny. And that’s most of what you need to know.” Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

Running Time: 2 hours 45 minutes with intermission
