Awake In a World That Encourages Sleep is a dark comedy set in an atmosphere of doubt and suspicion about our country grasping to hold on to world power. A surprising romantic triangle unfolds as a couple (Paul and Erica) argue about their son joining the army at his father’s urging; the same man who was himself a draft dodger. Enter Edward, who works for Paul but is now quitting his highly sensitive position. Erica is strongly drawn to Edward. As the two men contend for her favor, the play conveys the eerie feeling that things are way out of our control. War is raging within hearing distance while our characters perch on park benches, reading Tolstoy between spurts of intense and humorous conversation. Awake In a World That Encourages Sleep embraces contemporary issues of war, corporate power and greed. The play delves into the exploitation of the weak by the strong and the growing imbalance of wealth between the poor and rich.
