Description: Awake and Sing!
Directed by Bill Sigalis
Produced by Barbara Guertin
May 18- 27
The Sprinkler Factory

This classic Odets piece is being brought to life under the direction of Bill Sigalis, former President of The Worcester Shakespeare Company as well as a seasoned actor and director in a number of productions. This production will be performed in the intimate Sprinkler Factory space with a six show run from May 18-20 and May 25- 27.
Set in The Bronx Borough of New York City in 1933, Awake and Sing introduces the audience to the Bergers', a Jewish family struggling to make ends meet with three generations all living under one roof. The matriarch of the family, Bessie, had high hopes and dreams for her family. However, once the grim reality of the post- Depression era sets in, Bessie becomes determined to keep her family afloat during economic hardship at whatever means necessary, costing the happiness of those closest to her. Between the parents, children, grandfather, uncle and boarders, (including War World I veteran, Moe Axelrod and foreigner Sam Feinschreiber) the Berger household is made up of idealists and realists, reflecting society as a whole 80 years ago, and in life today.

New York Times- "Odets's genius is how vibrant his message remains."
Tony Winner of Best Revival of a Play 2006
Wall Street Journal- "Signature work by one of America's most distinguished playwrights."

The ensemble bringing this classic play to life is made up of both newcomers making their 4th Wall Stage Company debut, and familiar faces who most recently acted in 12 Angry Jurors at the Hanover Theatre. This production continues the long time tradition of the 4th Wall putting on classic productions that speak to our common humanity, and resonate with audiences of today.

"Awake and sing ye who dwell in the dust."
