Dragon Fruit! Black Beluga Lentils! Perfectly Soft-Boiled Eggs!

Seven public defenders seek meaning, belonging, and some semblance of order via their frenzied quest for the perfect lunch—while battling ACS, inequality, burnout, and a big ole serving of existential dread. Inspired by the real-life Bronx Defenders, Lunch Bunch pays tribute to the sacrifices public servants make every day.

Lunch Bunch, commissioned by Clubbed Thumb, was developed and first produced in their 2019 Winterworks and Summerworks series.
