A Wake
A Wake is an intriguing mystery about a troupe of actors who reunite for the wake of their eccentric theatre director (Nicholas Campbell). But all hell breaks loose over the weekend when secrets and lies are exposed. Featuring a superb ensemble cast, A Wake uses the rawness of improvisation and modern Shakespearean subtext to take you on a visceral, emotional ride that will engage your thoughts long after you’ve left the theatre.

Starring: Nicholas Campbell, Martha Burns, Krista Sutton, Tara Nicodemo, Graham Abbey, Raoul Bhaneja, Sarain Boylan and Kristopher Turner

Story by Krista Sutton & Penelope Buitenhuis.
Produced by Paul Scherzer and Breakthrough Films.

A Wake can presently be seen on pay channels: TMN and Movie Central. Available soon on DVD.
