Performed in the run-up to Christmas/New Year, The Wake is an uplifting performance event which takes audiences on a joyful yet cathartic ride through the memories, events and moments that have shaped the passing year for all of us.
This party-style celebration is a chance to look back, look forward and celebrate life.
