Spring Awakening 

‘Spring Awakening’ is a fearless portrayal of the lives of young people growing up in a repressive society. It is a play about discovery, desire and the loss of innocence. Teenage friends share their insecurities and deepest fears. Children strive to make their parents proud at all costs. Young men and women, curious and confused by unfamiliar impulses, make rash decisions – with heartbreaking consequences.
