Awake and Sing!  
Sedgwick Theater Awake and Sing!
 
Three generations of a Jewish family share a small Bronx apartment during the Great Depression, as each family member seeks individual happiness while doing his or her part to keep the family solvent. The experience and pragmatism of the parents come into conflict with the nostalgia of the grandfather and the dreams of their children. Can hope survive, or will reality tear this complex and loving family apart? Full of humor, poetry and drama, Awake and Sing! is an American classic of Chekhovian proportions and is considered the finest play by Philadelphia native Clifford Odets. See this Quintessence Theatre production at the Sedgwick Theater in Mt. Airy.

Mouthy, headstrong and maybe just a tad crazy, Marnie is going to prove to everyone that she's a competent mother. Because she is ... isn't she? Inis Nua Theatre brings this Edinburgh Fringe Fest hit to the Louis Bluver Theatre at The Drake in Philadelphia for its American premiere.

Based on E.L.
