Awoken (2017)

Presented as part of Theatre Kraken's Emerging Artist Development Program

Written by and featuring Nicholas Dave Amott

 

The Gladstone Theatre, 910 Gladstone Avenue
September 12–16, 2017

Awoken is a psychological thriller that tells the story of Todd, a man with a rare genetic disease that prevents him from falling asleep. After months without sleep, Todd is in a state of complete mental collapse, until a strange figure appears and leads him on a journey of awakening.

Lit entirely by the lone actor onstage, this show is a must-see tour de force, and Amott delivers a "physical, engaging and nuanced performance."
