The story

Wakey, Wakey was called “profoundly moving” by The New York Times and Variety called it "a work of humor, humanity and grace that makes you want to hug your lover, your neighbor and maybe an usher on the way out.” This new play from Pulitzer Prize-nominee Will Eno (The Realistic Joneses, Middletown, Thom Pain) features a guy named Guy who knows, like all of us on some level, that he is about to die. Guy engages the audience in a conversation about life and what is worth celebrating, what is worth treasuring, and what is worth letting go in this moving and hilarious play.

Audience members who remember past Dobama productions of Will Eno’s plays know that they are in for a memorable night at the theatre, full of hearty laughs and moments that will touch you.
