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.
