Wake - Heidi & Deirdre
We love actors, especially those who do such phenomenal work here at Berkeley Rep, so it is with great pleasure that we celebrate the accomplishments of two actors currently performing in the world premiere of Lisa Kron's In the Wake (which just happens to open tonight in the Roda Theatre).

The Obie Awards, presented by The Village Voice to honor off-Broadway theatre, were handed out Monday, and Deirdre O'Connell, who plays Judy in In the Wake, and Heidi Schreck, who plays Ellen, were both recognized with an Obie for Best Ensemble in the Playwrights Horizons production Circle Mirror Transformation by Annie Baker. 

Deirdre and Heidi were part of an ensemble that also included Reed Birney, Tracee Chimo, and Peter Friedman. Annie Baker received an Obie for Best New American Play, which she shared with herself for The Aliens, currently at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater.

Congratulations to Deirdre and Heidi!
