Pick of the week stage
Mr Burns: A Post-Electric Play Mr Burns depicts the US in structural and social ruin. People sit around makeshift campfires talking and trying to remember stuff from before the end times. Gradually they recall scraps of The Simpsons’ dialogue and the entwined esoterica of intertextual cultural references. They end up forming a company of players, competing with rival troupes, performing often inaccurately reconstructed versions of Simpsons folios that might have been. Belvoir Theatre, 25 Belvoir Street, Surry Hills. Tuesday, 6.30pm. Tickets: $37-$72. Bookings: (02) 9699 3444 or online. Until June 25.
