Spring Awakening
by Frank Wedekind
tr. Edward Bond
Apr. 23–26

Subtitled A Children’s Tragedy, the first production of this play in 1906 was so incendiary that riots broke out at performances, and the work was subjected to repeated censorship. Later generations have found it a powerful creation, shaped out of the inner experiences of its teenage protagonists. Recently turned into a hit Broadway musical, come see where the original journey began, set against the backdrop of a repressive, draconian and provincial nineteenth-century Germany.
