The power grid is down. Providence is deserted. Boston is a mess. And all of Pennsylvania… but Stamford seems ok?

Facing an uncertain future, survivors gather and try to put society back together. The glue? A scattershot network of community theater troupes and old episodes of The Simpsons. This weirdly touching, action-packed play grapples with how our stories unify and define us. 

The piece is at once an affectionate tribute to a beloved pop institution, The Simpsons; a wisdom-laced illustration of the basic human need for stories; and a diabolically inventive game of telephone.” – Peter Marks, The Washington Post
