Inspired by James Joyce's novel "Finnegan's Wake", 13th Floor's "A Wake" is a darkly comic look into the lives of the Finnegan family on the eve of the funeral of much-un-loved aunt. Set in the home of the family patriarch, a hoarder of all things past, "A Wake" is at once ghost story, a comedy of errors and a deep exploration into the emotions surrounding a death in the family. Interspersing modern dialog with the the beautiful, hilarious and complex language of the novel, the characters shift from the everyday - a drink, a kiss, an argument - into the magical, where past and present merge, and vines grow all around.
