“ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT! When was the last time you saw a play so smart it made your head spin?”   The New York Times

It’s the end of everything in contemporary America. A future without power! What will survive? In a post-apocalyptic world, a group of strangers bond by recreating an episode of “The Simpsons.” From this meeting, memories of Marge and Homer become the basis for shaping a new society as the play travels decades into the future.
