The Civilians' THE GREAT IMMENSITY
New York Premiere
Written and Directed by Steve Cosson
Songs by Michael Friedman
Featuring Damian Baldet, Cindy Cheung, Dan Domingues, Rebecca Hart, Trey
Lyford, Chris Sullivan and Erin Wilhelmi
In a thrilling and timely production, presented in association with the
celebrated investigative theater company, The Civilians, 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?
