WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Following a sold-out run at the 2016 BAM Next Wave Festival, The Undertaking returns to New York City for an extended run at 59E59 Theaters. Written and directed by Steve Cosson and created in collaboration with visual artist Jessica Mitrani, The Undertaking is a playful and idiosyncratic take on the classical trip to the land of the dead. Drawing on the Civilians' multiyear exploration of questions of mortality, the play takes the idea of the recorded interview and pushes it into surprising (and personal) new places.
