Wake Up

Contemporary Drama

A family prepares for war.
A man wakes up next to a dead body.
The seas rise, the world is on fire.

Produced by Solar Bear, ‘Wake Up’ is a triple bill of visual theatre by three trailblazing directors. In three short plays you’ll be transported to a world torn apart by conflict to a future impacted by climate change, and to a small flat the morning after the night before.

Join us for an evening of drama, mystery and dark comedy, where so much is said without a word being spoken.

It opens up the power of a theatre beyond words that is emotive, sensitive, playful and kind.
