About the show

Two sisters weather a hurricane in this new drama from Premiere stages, which explores grief, family, and America’s shifting cultural and environmental climates. More…

From the show:

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.
