The Wake

Sisters rent a beach house to say goodbye to their late sister, Colleen when they find themselves caught in a hurricane of the same name.


In life, Colleen was a force of nature. Six months after her death, her sisters Maggie and Rosemary rent a beach house in Florida to scatter her ashes, only to find themselves and their respective partners staring down a hurricane. As the strong winds and rainbands begin, strange encounters with wildlife signal something more is going on. Filled with humor and heart, The Wake explores grief, family, and America’s shifting cultural and environmental climates.

“A finely crafted family drama laced with just the right amount of humor...a thought provoking piece of theater." - Marinna Kennedy, Broadway World.

“Ryan turns a grim premise into hilarious comedy.” - Gary Wien, New Jersey Stage
