    Synopsis: 

    What are we here for? Is time a friend or an enemy? Do we all eventually end up in the same place, but take different routes to get there? This funny, moving, and thought-provoking new play, written and directed by Lucille Lortel and Obie Award-winner Will Eno, challenges the notion of what really matters and recognizes the importance of life’s simple pleasures. (All of which might sound dreary, but there’s a chance this will be a really good experience.)

    'Wakey, Wakey' Stars Life and Death

    Ben Brantley

    February 27, 2017: Though the man telling the jokes is sitting down (he’s in a wheelchair), dying is a stand-up routine in Wakey, Wakey, the glowingly dark, profoundly moving new play by Will Eno. Portrayed with a master’s blend of pretty much every emotion there is by Michael Emerson, the monologuist at the center of this short, resonant tragicomedy is the M.C. of his own demise, the chief eulogist at his funeral. “Is it now?” asks Guy (Mr. Emerson), when we first see him, sprawled on the floor of a room that is filled with packing crates and seems to have half dematerialized. “I thought I had more time.”
