WAKE UP (EVERY MORNING) is a tragicomic fever dream that dissects and deconstructs contemporary American culture through language, movement, humor, and unflinching honesty. At times beautiful, at times disturbing, this rapid- fire reflection of our times promises to be confounding and thought-provoking.

The play follows four characters, who, through abstract, stream-of-consciousness dialogue, allow us to be privy to their innermost thoughts, contradictions, and demons. We follow these characters through the seeming mundanity of their daily routine, yet the striking imagery and complex language of the play allow us to see the emotional and philosophical cracks within even the most familiar situations. Their story (or lack thereof) is a poetic musing on anxiety, insecurity, and sexuality, and how these themes are affected by the ubiquity of technology and media.

Inspired by the work of theater artists Robert Wilson and Richard Foreman, WAKE UP was written at the beginning of 2017, while America was experiencing the beginning of a series of cultural and political shifts that may defy comprehension for many years to come. Though the play is not explicitly political, it is an attempt to document and contemplate the contemporary American zeitgeist.

Written/Directed by Henry Moskowitz
