Description

Awake and Sing! is a play about family. Family as a social unit within the broad framework of place and history as well as family as the abiding focal point of collective dream. It is this dual role of family within social reality and defining personal aspirations–that marks this play as both a modern work for the contemporary stage and a classic of American theater. It's a play that appeals to the heart as it provides a moving snapshot of our past and to our minds as it is rich in lessons for our future. It will retain its relevance as long as families are families and parents care for their children, while the children dream of better families in which to bring up their own children.
