“But, so, there’s the plan, some idea, and then there’s nature, and you, everyone, you adjust. And your life, is the adjustment.”
Will Eno’s evocative imagery and preoccupation with the nature of being has been compared to that of Samuel Beckett and Edward Albee. His latest play is both a celebration and a meditation on life; a stand-up style provocation that prompts us to re-examine our relationship to the world.
Wakey, Wakey explores how human dignity and our eloquence in the face of annihilation are the most powerful and affecting theatrical story there is. Intelligent, clear sighted and utterly devoid of sentimentality, this exciting new play is an immersive, transforming spectacle.
“Hosking is one of the country’s most under-appreciated talents, an actor of startling depth and nuance, and he is remarkable here.” – Time Out
“Immersive and genre crossing, Wakey Wakey is thoughtful, funny affecting and beautifully performed. Another excellent ‘Stitch’ in the tapestry of this innovative company.” – Australian Stag
