It’s always fascinating to be a small piece of an enormous work, such as This is Reading. For months, you hear bits and bobs about the grand scheme but focus only on your tiny piece. This past weekend, we saw it all come together at Franklin Street Station.
We continue our exploration of death in this episode of the Civilians’ podcast, which was recorded during a live performance at Joe’s Pub in NYC. Here, actors perform monologues based on Ian Daniel and Jay Stull’s interviews with people who regularly encounter death on the job. Emily Rossell plays an ER doctor from the Bronx, Nina Hellman plays an ER nurse from the Midwest, and Dan Domingues plays Brooklyn funeral home owner Andrew Anastasio. At the end of the episode, Rossell and James Rickman sing a murder ballad written by Michael Friedman.
