The Civilians: An Anthology of Six Plays
Playscripts, 2009 - Drama - 275 pages
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).
Includes the plays Canard, Canard, Goose? by The Civilians, Gone Missing by The Civilians, (I Am) Nobody's Lunch by The Civilians, The Ladies by Anne Washburn, Paris Commune by Steven Cosson and Michael Friedman, Shadow of Himself by Neal Bell. With a foreword by Oskar Eustis, Artistic Director of the Public Theater.
