Waking Up Dead

How do you grieve for someone you shared a life with, when that life was a lie?

Inspired by the true story of the intriguing case of Herman Rockerfeller.
Waking Up Dead is a suspenseful production that explores the story of an ordinary woman whose husband disappears and is later found murdered.
Through the investigation of his death, it becomes clear that for most of their married life he conducted an elaborate secret life as a swinger. Following such shocking events, how does the woman go on with her life? If so much of her life and identity was built on secrets and half-truths, how does she know who she is? With the use of a giant drawing-board in a beautifully rendered, intimate atmosphere, the woman
recreates key memories of her lost relationship, grappling with the complex nature of love, identity and betrayal.
