The NUEA is excited to announce a night at the theater with Wild Onion Theatre, the brainchild of four NU graduates.
A Northwestern production through and through, RICHARD WAKES UP was written by Andy Lampl (’07) and stars Matt Sheelen (’07), Ross Alden (’07), Margot Rubin (’07), and Megan Rose Greene (’07). It is co-directed by Mark Silverberg and Matt Sax (’06), the writer/star of the critically acclaimed shows CLAY and VENICE. Join us for the show, as well as a Q&A afterwards with the cast and creative team!

ABOUT RICHARD WAKES UP: The play depicts our Richard, a mousy milquetoast of a man, waking up to a phone call inviting him to live underground forever. Richard declines, and that decision sends him on a journey, both terrifying and absurd, through motel swimming pools and elevator shafts, abandoned subway tunnels and high-rise Hollywood office buildings, as he attempts to figure out who he truly is and why he wants (and deserves) to stay above the surface.
ABOUT WILD ONION THEATRE COMPANY: Founded by four Northwestern University graduates, the mission of the Wild Onion Theatre Company is to provide both a proverbial and physical stage for members of the local LA community to enact their enthusiasm for the arts. Through grassroots collaboration, Wild Onion aims to provide a comfortable space for local artists to nurture, brandish, and test their talents. Conversely, Wild Onion seeks to establish a program for audiences that is at once accessible, provocative, and organic – a place for Angelenos to celebrate and explore the inimitable complexities of their neighborhood!
