350x550_greatimmensityTHE CIVILIANS’ THE GREAT IMMENSITY
April 19, 2014
2:00 PM matinee at The Public Theater, 425 Lafayette St., Manhattan

Join The Civilians and the Public Theater at a performance of THE GREAT IMMENSITY, written and directed by Civilians’ Artistic Director, Steve Cosson, with music by Founding Associate Artist, Michael Friedman.  Created through a rare and prestigious grant by the National Science Foundation, THE GREAT IMMENSITY is a continent-hopping thriller following a woman, Phyllis, as she pursues her husband Karl who disappeared from a tropical island while on an assignment for a nature show. Through her search, Phyllis uncovers a mysterious plot surrounding the upcoming international climate summit in Paris. As the days count down to the summit, Phyllis must decipher the plan and possibly stop it in time. With arresting projected film and video and a wide-ranging score of songs, THE GREAT IMMENSITY is a highly theatrical look into one of the most vital questions of our time: how can we change ourselves and our society in time to solve the enormous environmental challenges that confront us?

A private post-show discussion will take place on the 2nd floor of the theatre in The Library bar/lounge with The Civilians’ Artistic Director, Steve Cosson.

TICKETS: $15 tickets with code CIVILIAN. CLICK HERE or call the Public at 212-967-7555.
DATE: Saturday, April 19, 2014 at 2:00 PM
LOCATION: The Public Theater, 425 Lafayette Street (at Astor Place)
