"The most distinctive, the most restless, the most obsessive imagination at work in the Irish theatre today" Brian Friel The Wake recounts the story of a woman, returning from the USA to her home town in Ireland. As her family learn of her years as a prostitute, she learns their attitudes and Irish society in general. A homecoming play, haunting yet fiercely comic.
