Made under the guidance of Wellington theatre-makers in collaboration with Active, a vocational service for youth with learning difficulties. Wake Up Tomorrow was created from the minds of these incredible young people. Audiences will be transported from the mundane moments on a long haul flight to bizarre and hilarious scenarios. This compelling, surreal, and funny script had been devised and created by these young people at every stage.
