“Won’t you visit my dreams for a while?”
OutFox Productions invites you to a new adaptation of Frank Wedekind’s classic, Spring Awakening.
Wendla Bergman just wants to know about it.
Mrs Bergman doesn’t want to discuss it.
Moritz is too nervous to talk about it.
Melchior can explain it, with diagrams.
Innocent eyes will see what you tell them.
A little learning is a dangerous thing.
Spring Awakening was ahead of its time. It questions authority, education and parenting. It subverts accepted views on teenage pregnancy, homosexuality, religion and suicide. It attempts to build new views, new ideas and new norms. Bold undertakings for a play originally written in the 1890s, and just as bold today.
“In thirty years, on an evening like to-day, if we recall this one, perhaps it will seem too beautiful for words.”
