From the mind of Will Eno—once dubbed “a Samuel Beckett for the Jon Stewart generation”—comes Wakey, Wakey, a play that calls to mind a stand-up routine performed at the edge of death.
Through its lead character, a dying man named Guy, the play grapples inventively and honestly with the human impulse to keep expressing ourselves, even as we near our inevitable end. The result is joyous, surprising, frequently funny, and ultimately rapturous.
In an unprecedented partnership, The Catastrophic Theatre and the University of Houston School of Theatre & Dance co-present this visiting production created by Austin-based Hyde Park Theatre.
This critically acclaimed production will be presented in Houston for a very limited two-week run.
“In such divided times, the ultimate message of Wakey, Wakey feels radical rather than trite—share yourself with others, and take care of them, and they’ll do the same for you.” — Austin Chronicle
“…glowingly dark, profoundly moving.” — The New York Times
