This is a show "about things lost and found" and was created from interviews with New Yorkers about their experiences of losing things. Alongside the accounts of lost rings, pets and clothes, we also hear of people who have lost their love, their mind, their love.

The show was devised by the Civilians from interviews with real life New Yorkers. The show is a wry and whimsical documentary musical about things that go missing - leys, personal identity documents, a Gucci pump … or one's mind. The show creates a unique tapestry of the ways in which we deal with, and relate to, loss in our lives.
