Spring Awakening was a graduation production with the students from Academy of Film, Theatre & Television
"You said if you didn’t love them, if you weren’t happy, if you didn’t care about them, it wasn’t real."
Unnerving, entertaining, funny and dark, Wedekind's definitive teenage drama caused riots when it exploded onto the stage in 1906 and has lost none of its provocative power.
Anya Reiss’ fearlessly contemporary adaptation examines the exuberance, intensity and confusion of teenage life today. Brought up to date and shockingly relevant, this new version follows eight over pressurised, ill informed and sexually charged teens on a journey of discovery.
Spring Awakening asks pressing questions about how young people are shaped for their future by a generation that doesn't understand them.
