Mr. Burns, a post-electric play

By Anne Washburn

Directed by Dr. C. Austin Hill

November 17-20, 2021

Anne Washburn’s imaginative dark comedy propels us from the “very near future” (or maybe yesterday) forward nearly a century, following a new civilization stumbling into its future. After the collapse of civilization, a group of survivors share a campfire and begin to pass the time and calm their nerves by piecing together the plot of "The Simpsons" episode "Cape Feare" entirely from memory. Seven years later, this and other snippets of pop culture (sitcom plots, commercials, jingles, and pop songs) have become the live entertainment of a post-apocalyptic society, sincerely trying to hold onto its past. Seventy-five years later, these are the myths and legends from which new forms of performance are created.


The Treatment

By Pablo Remón, Translated by Dr. Sandra Kingery

Directed by Dr. Biliana Stoytcheva-Horissian

February 23-26, 2022

This exciting series of virtual staged readings and workshops will provide an opportunity for the campus community to continue an ongoing conversation about narratives of Black and brown people, equity, diversity, inclusion, and how we can move toward a collective liberation. Four different virtual readings will address a variety of topics related to Black lives, centering BIPOC narratives, and discussions on race in America, followed by talkbacks with invited guests.


Nunsense

By Dan Goggin

Directed by Dr. C. Austin Hill

April 20-23, 2022

In this funny, irreverent, and charming musical, the nuns known as the Little Sisters of Hoboken are putting on a show to raise money to bury sisters accidently poisoned by the convent cook, Sister Julia (Child of God). With a wide range of musical styles, and a recently-updated script full of gags, jokes, and heart, Nunsense truly IS “habit forming”!
