Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Unnerving, entertaining, funny and dark, Wedekind's definitive play about youth caused riots when it exploded onto the stage in 1906 and has lost none of its provocative power. Brought up-to-date by award-winning playwright Anya Reiss, this new version examines the exuberance, intensity and confusion of teenage life today. Spring Awakening asks important and pressing questions about how young people are shaped for their future by a generation that doesn't understand them.

"The most thrilling adaptation of Spring Awakening I have ever seen." – Financial Times

"Captures the desperation and somnambulism of Wedekinds [characters] but shrewdly updates their world." - Observer

"Urgent and thrilling." – Telegraph

Synopsis:

Award-winning playwright Anya Reiss brings Frank Wedekind's definitive play about youth into the modern era.
