The Undertaking

The OP Written Show by The Civilians Returns to 59E59


Thursday, January 11, 2018 to Sunday, February 4, 2018

Who's Involved:

The Undertaking is a "morbidly funny" and "thought-provoking" (The New York Times, Critic's Pick) playful and idiosyncratic take on the classical trip to the land of the dead. Drawing on The Civilians' (Mr. Burns: A Post-Electric Play, Gone Missing) exploration into the anxieties and mysteries of mortality, the play takes the idea of the recorded interview and pushes it into surprising (and personal) new places.
