“Eno is at his most achingly, triumphantly humanist here. He has, in this wonderful, wonderful play, actually struck on something resembling a satisfying answer to death, buried somewhere in the knowledge that we live a million rebirths in even the smallest of gifts we leave behind.” —Graham Techler, Paste Magazine
“Wakey, Wakey, a glowingly dark, profoundly moving new play by Will Eno.” —Ben Brantley, New York Times
“A work of humor, humanity, and grace.” —Frank Rizzo, Variety
“Alive with rippling depths of sorrow and warming currents of bliss. Eno’s unique voice—quizzical, perceptive, assertively compassionate—is one to be celebrated.” —David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
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 by 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.)
Will Eno lives in Brooklyn with his wife Maria Dizzia and their daughter Albertine.
