Our guest this week is Scott Knoff, who's directing "Mr. Burns: A Post-Electric Play" at Bradley University. The play features three retellings of an episode of "The Simpsons:" as a tale told around a campfire, again as a performance by a group of re-enactors, and finally as a grand opera. Kanoff says the play is an exploration of the act of storytelling and the function stories have in a our culture. He also talks about some of the "table work" the company did in its preparation, and about audience response to the show's opening weekend.

Performances continue tonight through Sunday in the Hartmann Center Theatre at Bradley University.
