After the collapse of civilization, a group of survivors share a campfire and begin to piece together the plot of The Simpsons episode “Cape Feare” from memory as a way to connect. Seven years later, this and other snippets of pop culture have become the entertainment of a post-apocalyptic society trying to hold onto its past. Seventy-five years later, these are the myths and legends from which new forms of art are created.
Shows are July 14–29 on Fri & Sat @ 8pm, Sun @ 2pm
