In September 2019, Quark will present the Memphis premiere of Will Eno’s Wakey Wakey, which the New York Times called “A glowingly dark, profoundly moving new play.” It’s a funny, sad, tragic, comic examination of the many ways a life can run its course.
In the first line of the show, Guy, the protagonist, seems to rouse from a nap and says “Is it now? I thought I had more time.” And then we’re off to an examination of Guy’s life, in a moving showcase of life’s messy entanglements and its moments of surprising beauty. Wakey Wakey is a funny, thoughtful, at times tearful examination of what it means to be human.
