In the aftermath of an untold apocalyptic event, a group of young strangers huddle around a makeshift campfire, attempting to take their minds off this new unthinkable reality by piecing together an episode of The Simpsons, one of the only memories they share.

We see the group in the days immediately following the disaster, then seven years later, and then 75 years into the future. Anne Washburn’s glittering dark comedy watches the world as we know it crumble into an uncertain future and asks: What now? What stories and mythologies will we want and need, and how will we keep them alive?
