Spring Awakening by Frank Wedekind in a new version by Anya Reiss
Unnerving, entertaining, funny and dark: Wedekind’s play about a group of boys and girls discovering their sexuality caused uproar when it exploded onto the stage in 1906 and has lost none of its provocative power. This thrilling contemporary version by British playwright Anya Reiss examines the intensity and confusion of teenage life today. Under the hopelessly ineffectual mentorship of their parents and set within the pressure cooker environment of a results oriented school system, 8 youths grapple to understand the bewildering world of puberty as they navigate the most profound moments in their young lives. With unforgiving and refreshing frankness Spring Awakening asks important and necessary questions about how young people are shaped for their future by a generation that doesn’t understand them.
