(7m, 3f, 2/m/f) a play by Elizabeth Inchbald, part of our Regency Repertoire

Should she be a ‘wife of former times’ or a ‘maid of the present day’?

Comedy Play: 'W.O.K.E. Up!' by Anna Longaretti

W.O.K.E. Up! by Anna Longaretti

(2m, 3f) a play about woke culture
Richard, an advertising big shot, comes back to life after lying comatose for years and enters his place of work to find that everything has changed. No more babes, bonuses and Bentleys… absolutely everything has changed… his way of working, the adverts his company creates, the words he’s no longer allowed to utter, his relationship with his creative partner, and the fact that a millennial is running the show. In this play attitudes, opinions, assumptions, and standpoints are challenged. The misuse of power through the woke culture is exposed, along with the virtue-signalling hypocrisy in the world of advertising. No one is ever the same again.
