“Woke!” consists of a series of spoken-word personal narratives that deal with racism, sexism, feminism and all of their intricate intersectionalities. It’s the first installment in the theatre’s “Devising Democracy” series, a line of productions intended to generate conversation around current political issues.
I spent a lot of that weekend worrying that I was going to regret going. It’s the middle of midterms, I have a lot of deadlines, papers, readings and projects. I tried to cram as much as I could before departing and I’ve been paying for the weekend since I got back. But seeing this show, with its amazing cast and all of the hard work and labor put into it, was worth it.
