NOTES ON THE PLAY
In 2008 I was commissioned by The Civilians, an investigative theater group based in NYC, to work on an idea I’d been wondering about for years: What would happen to a pop culture narrative pushed past the fall of civilization?
For a week that summer, director Steve Cosson and I hunkered in a disused bank vault/free rehearsal space deep under Wall Street with Civilians’ actors Quincy Bernstine, Maria Dizzia, Gibson Frazier, Matt Maher, Jenny Morris, Sam Wright, and Colleen Werthmann.
We tasked them with remembering Simpsons’ episodes, and the dialogue around the remembering of the episode in The First Act (and the small section of the episode rehearsed in The Second Act) is largely verbatim from those sessions.
It should be noted that the characters in this play bear at best a passing, and in many cases none whatsoever, resemblance to the actors initially involved in the project.
