A Wake
Six actors of a once-famed troupe reunite at the wake of their theatre's deceased and infamous director, with comic results. Sentimentality slowly gives way to the resurrection of old rivalry, gossip and jealousy as the horrified widow looks on. "A Wake" is an intense, improvised comedic feature about secrets, lies and human nature.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"I would have liked to see a few more claws come out in the catfights, but at least A Wake is not too hammy - and that's saying a lot when you've got actors playing actors."
‑ Jennie Punter, Globe and Mail
"An intense little drama distinguished by an excellent ensemble cast."
‑ Liz Braun, Jam! Movies
