SEASON FIVE: Wakey, Wakey

The New York Times called Will Eno’s Wakey, Wakey “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. Our production, which marked Quark’s return to the theater after the Covid-19 pandemic, ran July 7 – 24, 2022.

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.
