Odets’ masterpiece centers on the lives of an urban family during the Great Depression.


I was captivated, I couldn’t take my eyes off of any of them.

—Audience member

The acting and directing are brilliant.
In a matter of minutes we, the audience, are sympathetic and interested in all the characters.
We immediately know and recognize each of them. And, of course, this is due in no small part to
Odets’ writing which invites us to recognize our own experience with these people.

—J. W., Audience Member

The Rogue ensemble’s deft pacing catches the rhythms of this family’s inevitable
and overlapping arguments, making us feel for all of them. A real achievement!

—J. C., Audience Member

Loved the play, loved the production! It remains with me.
Once again, Rogue has made me really think about the world we live in:
how it’s changed, and, even more so, how it hasn’t.
Thank you for a fine afternoon of great theatre.

—P. S., Audience Member

Awake and Sing wants all of us to wake up from our dreams and sing of the truth. To believe in ourselves, instead of believing what we are told.
The Rogue Theatre wants that, too, bringing us this deeply moving production like a sad-eyed kick in the pants!
