    Wakey, Wakey

    "Though the man telling the jokes is sitting down (he's in a wheelchair), dying is a stand-up routine in this glowingly dark, profoundly moving new play by Will Eno,” states The New York Times. From the playwright of Thom Pain (based on nothing) comes this welcome work of theatre, embodied here by Ken Webster and Maria Latiolais; directed by Mark Pickell for Capital T Theatre. And here's our review of the show's previous presentation.
    Through June 1. Thu.-Sat., 8pm. $20-30.
