Collected for the first time in one volume are six inventive theater pieces created by Obie Award-winning theater company The Civilians. Based on the creative investigation of actual experience, and often intertwined with experimental cabaret, their pieces are boldly theatrical and always unique -- from a story about a Hollywood movie and a lost flock of geese (Canard, Canard, Goose?); to a tale about things lost and found, charting a musical landscape of loss (Gone Missing); to a dark ride through the landscape of American public culture, asking a thorny question: how do we know what we know when everyone in power seems to be lying? ((I Am) Nobody's Lunch). Read More

    "The Civilians [is] one of the city's smartest and most original troupes."

    Time Out New York

    "Gone Missing is engrossing and inventive. And it delivers a stunning payoff in its final scene."

    Variety

    "(I Am) Nobody's Lunch [is] a funny, searching, at times plaintive look at the dangerous blurring of fact and myth in American culture."

    Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
