Spring Awakening

By Frank Wedekind
Directed by Chris Honer

Spring Awakening is a fairy tale on fire, a brilliant fable of sexuality, personal responsibility and individual ideas set in a time of increasingly repressive social values. Written in 1891 but banned in Britain until the 1970's because of its themes of sexual awakening and teen suicide, Frank Wedekind's dark classic Spring Awakening is as relevant today as it was 112 years ago.
