Help LML's MR BURNS be excellent!

Little Mountain Lion Productions is a Vancouver-based, not-for-profit theatre company. Our mandate explores the overlap between film, literature and theatre. We bring in new audiences to theatre by bridging these gaps; and while doing so, we create opportunities for emerging artists. 

We've been bringing daring, exciting plays to life for the last 5 years – and in April 2018, we're bringing our biggest and most exciting production yet to life. 

We're happy to bring Anne Washburn's Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play to the stage in its Vancouver Premiere, coming in April 2018. 

We're working with TheatreWire , a one-stop shop for local independent theatre happenings, to bring in audiences from around the Lower Mainland.

This funny, engaging, insightful play is a treat for anyone with nostalgia for the golden age of family TV time, and also those curious about what live entertainment may look like a century after the fall of civilization as we know it.

About Mr. Burns: What happens to pop culture after the fall of human civilization? What about 7 years after the fall? Or even 75 years? Mr. Burns, a Post-Electric Play, endeavours to find out.

After nuclear power plants across North America go critical, a small group of survivors gather in the woods and begin to recount an episode of The Simpsons. Over the course of the play’s three acts - and three-quarters of a century timespan - casual storytelling evolves into theatre, theatre evolves into ritual, and the pop culture of the 90's evolves into myth and legend for a post-apocalyptic, post-electric world.

All funds raised will go directly to author royalties, venue rental fees, actor fees, building costs, insurance rates, designer fees, supplies and materials for the upcoming production. This campaign is meant to supplement all funds we raise at local fundraisers, as well as any grants we receive. 

Thank you for your time and for considering making a donation. And thank you for believing in independent, local theatre. 

Praise for the show:
“Anne Washburn’s hypnotic, sly and fiendishly insinuating Mr. Burns, A Post-Electric Play ... does the improbable: It makes the end of civilization seem like the perfect time to create glowing objects of wonder and beauty.” —Time Out New York.
