Central School Room #108
The Awakening of Spring
The Awakening of Spring is the German dramatist Frank Wedekind's first major play and a seminal work in the modern history of theatre. It is the source material for the contemporary rock musical Spring Awakening. The play criticises the sexually-oppressive culture of fin de siècle Germany and offers a vivid dramatisation of the erotic fantasies that it breeds. Due to the nature of its content, the play has often been banned.
Please note that this show contains sexually explicit and mature content. It is reccomended for ages 13+ with parental guidance.
Directed by Jessa Lormand
