by Will Eno
Directed by Anne Kauffman
Starring two-time Emmy Award winner Tony Hale
A.C.T.’s Geary Theater
An intimate comedy about love, life, and what it means to be human.
“Is it now? I thought I had more time.” Over the course of a very special hour, a man considers his entire life. What does he remember? What will he share? What does it mean? Funny, quirky, and provocative, Wakey, Wakey is an intimate new comedy from Obie Award–winning playwright Will Eno—a surprising yet familiar look at what it means and how it feels to be human.
Experience the play that has everyone talking—plus a never-before-seen companion play commissioned and developed by A.C.T. and written by Eno featuring Kathryn Smith-McGlynn alongside students from A.C.T.’s acclaimed MFA program, and refreshments to follow the show. Starring two-time Emmy Award winner Tony Hale (Veep, Arrested Development,Toy Story 4), Wakey, Wakey is a remarkable combination of the extraordinary and the everyday that invites you to share the pleasure, humor, and beautiful mystery of life.
“Glowingly dark, profoundly moving”
The New York Times
"... 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."
