About Awake and Sing!

In a cramped Bronx apartment, a working-class Jewish family dreams of a brighter future. Matriarch Bessie Berger's fierce determination keeps her family afloat, whatever the cost. Gritty, passionate, funny, and heartbreaking, Odets' 1935 masterpiece beautifully captures both the hopes and the struggles of an unforgettable American family.

"Since her gorgeous, moving production of Luck of the Irish in 2011, I've wanted to bring director Melia Bensussen back to the Huntington to mount a classic. She has a great passion for Clifford Odets' work — Awake and Sing! was Melia's childhood, she once told me. Her talent for telling intimate family stories that play out on a broad social canvas makes now the perfect opportunity for her return."— Peter DuBois
"In Awake and Sing!, Clifford Odets beautifully captures the pains and challenges of all nuclear families living in times of social struggle and economic crisis. This great American play articulates the passions and dilemmas of American society and resonates with the same issues that challenge us today as we grapple to make meaning of our lives. It's a thrill to be back at the Huntington, and I look forward to us rediscovering the beauty and poetry of Odets' voice together."— Melia Bensussen
