‘Mr. Burns’ helps us understand the impulse to create

MIDDLEBURY COLLEGE STUDENTS Kendall Schilling, Phoebe Davis, Sajia Yaqouby, Kylie Crow and Cheryl Engmann worked with props designer and alum Noah Mease for the upcoming production of “Mr. Burns, a Post Electric Play” by Anne Washburn. Alex Draper is directing this performance that will take place in Wright Memorial Theater beginning May 5. Independent photo/Steve James
