“Maybe there is no moral.
Maybe it's just a bunch of stuff that happened.” - Lisa Simpson.
From Homer's Odyssey to Homer the Heretic, when civilisations are destroyed the greatest stories we tell survive.
In the wake of a nuclear catastrophe a disparate group of survivors try to recall episodes of The Simpson's in the hopes that their shared memory of popular culture will normalise and ground them in this new human experience.
The stories the choose to memorialise around a camp fire will take root and form the basis of folk tales and mythology for generations to come.
Anne Washburn's extraordinary thought experiment asks questions about the very soul of humanity, why we tell stories, how they spread and what they mean to us.
'Mr Burns' brings to life a vivid world just beyond our own existence.
