The Civilians, The Obie-winning theater company, premieres its much anticipated new project, Nobody's Lunch, at Performance Space 122 (150 First Avenue) on September 23. Written and directed by Steven Cosson and featuring original songs by Michael Friedman, Nobody’s Lunch continues through October 17. Delving into the politics of information, the company – in its singular signature style – conducted extensive interviews to look at the problematic subject of how we gain knowledge and form beliefs in the present cultural climate. With interviewees ranging from the Head of Policy at Homeland Security to a New York body piercer, from an Egyptian grad student to every Jessica Lynch in the phone book (who was willing to talk); Nobody's Lunch is a dark and eccentric ride through the landscape of American public culture.
