Why See Wakey, Wakey?
A play about life's complicated journey!
A contemplative new play by Obie and Lucille Lortel Award winner Will Eno, Wakey Wakey asks us to take a step back and enjoy life's pleasures as we consider where life takes us. Simultaneously humorous and moving, Eno asks us to thinks about what really matters to us, whether time is a good or bad concept, and whether or not we are headed to the same destination, no matter the paths we find ourselves on.
