A photo from the play WAKEY, WAKEY, by playwright Will Eno. A Black woman sits in a waiting room chair. She is looking at someone or something out of frame, smiling. She is wearing a pink cardigan, a patterned white shirt, kakhi pants, and red leather flat shoes. She has a large, light blue purse in her lap. Sitting on the ground next to her feet are a blue and white plastic lunch box and a black water bottle.
