Essential Theatre's World Premiere of Avery Sharpe's prize-winning play about two young friends -- one black and one white -- who have a falling out over their different understandings of social injustice. A story about friendship, with humor and heart. "It’s a terrific work, one of the best the company has ever staged. Woke wakes you up, slaps you in the face and demands that you pay attention to what is really going on the world — and pay attention as well to what the gifted Sharpe has in store next.” – JIM FARMER, ArtsATL. “Vivid and memorable performances. It is thought-provoking and eloquent.” – BRAD RUDY, ATLANTA THEATRE BUZZ. Part of the 2018 Essential Theatre Play Festival. Visit www.EssentialTheatre.com for tickets and scheduling information.
