“Webster’s performance radiates charm . . . Captivating, superbly funny” – Austin Chronicle

“Universal and timeless” – Houston Press

The HPT hit from 2018 that earned raves when it toured to Houston this January is back! in a nine-shows-only production by our sister theater company Capital T.

A stand-up routine performed at the edge of death, Wakey, Wakey, by Will Eno, grapples inventively and honestly with the human impulse to keep expressing ourselves, even as we near our inevitable end. The result is joyous, surprising, frequently funny, and ultimately rapturous. Wakey, Wakey offers a kind of spiritual bookend to Eno’s Pulitzer Prize-nominated one-man show Thom Pain (Based on Nothing).

Wakey, Wakey features Austin Arts Hall of Fame member Ken Webster reprising the role he played for HPT in 2018 and in Houston earlier this year, as well as Maria Latiolais (The Wolves, The Antipodes). It is directed by Cap T artistic Director Mark Pickell.

Wakey, Wakey runs at 8:00 PM on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, May 16 - June 1, 2019. Tickets are available from Capital T Theatre.

Hyde Park Theatre is located at 511 W. 43rd Street. Covered off-street parking for the patrons of HPT is available during performances in the lot at 4315 Guadalupe Street, just north of The Parlor. You can drive through The Parlor's parking lot to reach it. Evening HPT parking also available at the Hyde Park Church of Christ on the northeast corner of 43rd & Avenue B. We are grateful to them both for their generosity.
