The Wake 2017

Unless your name is Harold or Maude, chances are that you are not a fan of going to wakes. But what if we told you that there is one wake that you would actually like to attend. It’s a wake for Carrie DeKoffin, whose grieving friends and family members would love for your to come shed a tear and raise a glass of Guinness to the deceased beloved gal. 

The Party To Die For Lives On!

Actually, Carrie DeKoffin is a fictitious character, but nobody really needs to know that. What’s important is that the wake is a grand excuse to come together, to celebrate the life of someone who would want us all to be merry and festive. What would Carrie have wanted? She would have wanted us to be merry, to listen to Celtic music, dance, drink ales, porters, lagers and wines, and consume delicious bites of food. That’s what she would have wanted, and that’s what we’re going to do.

Tickets required. Tears optional.

Since you’re attending The Wake, be sure to introduce yourself to Carrie’s family members who will be in attendance. It’s the best way to learn about the recently deceased, since you’re essentially (legally) crashing the affair!

Everyone is invited to attend The Wake, an annual fundraiser for the Irish Classical Theatre Company.
