Lost in the wilderness | MR. BURNS: A POST-ELECTRIC PLAY by Anne Washburn at Portland Playhouse

Perils of institutionalization on display. When cute and clever triumph, audience loses. Based on first half, easily the worst show I have ever seen at Portland Playhouse. A slight, disposable play made considerably worse by awkward staging, environmental challenges, thrown together feel. Artifact of deadly new self-regarding Portland. Naked emperor.
