Spring Awakening Summary

Spring Awakening by Frank Wedekind

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 bang 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.

Spring Awakening Reviews

The most thrilling adaptation of Spring Awakening I have ever seen... * Five Stars - Financial Times *
Anya Reiss has taken Wedekind's original way ahead of its time. * Four Stars - The Times *
Confusion is eternal, so Anya Reiss's new version neatly relocates the play in our world of smartphone smut and suicide selfies. * Sunday Times *
She captures the desperation and somnambulism of Wedekind's [characters] but shrewdly updates their world. * Observer *
Urgent and thrilling. * Telegraph *
Spring Awakening ticks all the right boxes with regards to being a powerful piece of contemporary theatre: it engages you, comments on the world we live in today and gets you to think about your views on it - this new version of Spring Awakening is a dark, tongue-in-cheek, edge-of-your-seat thrill ride that will keep you thinking long after the final blackout. * Younger Theatre *
