A MODERN, IRONIC VERSION OF THE SLEEPING BEAUTY FAIRY TALE.

GET TICKETS FOR A KIND OF ALASKA

Deborah falls victim to “sleepy sickness” as a 15 year old and awakens 29 years later to find her world a changed place. As she emerges from a state of perpetual memory, past and present dance for dominance in her mind.

Deborah’s younger sister, Pauline, now middle-aged herself, wonders how much of the truth Deborah can handle. More perplexing, was the doctor who was instrumental in Deborah’s recovery her prince charming–or someone more sinister?

Audiences will enjoy the challenge of piecing together Deborah’s story in this one-act play by Nobel prize-winning playwright, Harold Pinter, inspired by Oliver Sacks’ book Awakenings.
