The Undertaking is a "morbidly funny" and "thought-provoking" (The New York Times, Critic's Pick) playful and idiosyncratic take on the classical trip to the land of the dead. Drawing on The Civilians' (Mr. Burns: A Post-Electric PlayGone Missing) exploration into the anxieties and mysteries of mortality, the play takes the idea of the recorded interview and pushes it into surprising (and personal) new places. 

"STUNNING... THIS INVESTIGATION OF DEATH BRINGS US SUCH NEW RESPECT FOR LIFE."- Theatre is Easy, Best Bet
