After the collapse of civilization, a group of survivors begin to piece together the plot of “The Simpsons” episode “Cape Feare” from memory. 7 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. 75 years later, these are the myths and legends from which new forms of performance are created. An exciting exploration of how the pop culture of one era might evolve into the mythology of another.
On Saturday June 10th, there'll be a Talk-Back following the performance with the Director, cast members, and special guest Dasa Zeithamova, Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology, whose research interest includes cognitive-neuroscience and memory.
