In Wake the Body, three brothers battle over inheritance during their father's funeral vigil. The play's central tension rises between Owen Cowper, who's lived his whole life shackled to this dying Texas town, and his older brother Ford, who left years ago for a rambling existence. To secure his freedom, Owen will have to get through his brothers, who harbor agendas of their own. The ensuing clash unearths a surprising relative, a buried secret, and a loss of faith. As the three siblings battle, they become increasingly aware of a fourth person in the room—the body lying in the corner.
