Spring's Awakening

Spring's Awakening Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

-- "Spring's Awakening" challenged too many taboos to be performable when first written. Otherwise a production in 1891 would have been a shot heard round the world, as the early productions of A Dolls House had been. Ibsen had dramatized the subjection of women. Just as radically (or more so), Wedekind dramatized the subjection of children.

Synopsis:

Spring's Awakening is a tragi-comedy of teenage sex. Its fourteen-year-old heroine, Wendla, is killed by abortion pills. The young Moritz, terrorized by the world around him, and especially by his teachers, shoots himself. The ending seems likely to be the suicide of Moritz's friend, Melchior, but in a confrontation with a mysterious stranger (the famous Masked Man) he finally manages to shed his illusions and face the consequences.
