Awake and Sing!

Awake and Sing!

By Clifford Odets

Directed by Scott Kaiser

Mayer Theatre

November 6–14, 2015


A stirring American classic, Awake and Sing! is the story of the Bergers, a lower-middle-class, three-generation Jewish family living in a Bronx apartment during the Depression. Odets described it as “a struggle for life amid petty conditions,” capturing the frenetic, pressured existence in this crowded dwelling with robust authenticity.
Awake and Sing! is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French. Inc.
