It s always death that brings about change in the world, says the ailing patriarch Uncle Cecil, who will leave in his wake a suicidal child, a woman in deep mourning and a devastating family secret. When the family comes together to say goodbye, his dying sets in motion events that will change their worlds forever. When We Wake Up Dead is an exploration of grief, mental illness and the fragility of familial bonds. In this play filled with moments of tenderness and vulnerability, we're reminded how the past can forever haunt the present.
