Spring Awakening by Frank Wedekind in a new version by Anya Reiss

Unnerving, challenging, funny and dark


Spring Awakening by Frank Wedekind in a new version by Anya Reiss

Anya Reiss’s fearlessly contemporary adaptation of this always controversial classic repositions Wedekind’s challenging story of emerging adolescent sexuality in today’s world of easily accessible pornography, cyber bullying and self-harm. Originally set in the late 19th century in Germany, Reiss’s up to date version reflects the same intensity and confusion felt by a group of teenagers who are over-pressurised by a demanding education system, their peers and their parents. Completely ill informed about sex and relationships due to a repressive society and their parents’ silence on such matters, the teenagers turn to each other for support.
