The Catastrophic Theatre presents Wakey, Wakey
The Catastrophic Theatre and University of Houston School of Theatre & Dance will co-present a visiting production of Will Eno’s Wakey, Wakey, created by Hyde Park Theatre in Austin. 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. Wakey, Wakey offers a kind of spiritual bookend to Eno’s Pulitzer Prize-nominated one-man show, Thom Pain (Based on Nothing), staged by Catastrophic in 2016.
