"Woke"

at Essential Theatre

Sale price Regular price


Woke, a world premiere by Atlanta actor/playwright Avery Sharpe, is one of two new plays in the 2018 Essential New Play Festival's summer repertory. It uses both drama and comedy to follow two close friends from different backgrounds as they navigate the high school-to-college transition. When a calamitous event captures national attention, they must also face conflicting understandings of social awareness as they search for what it truly means to be "woke."
