Puberty can be hard. Just ask the schoolchildren in 'Spring Awakening'.
The boys are bubbling with testosterone, the girls want to know where babies come from, and the adults don’t want a bar of it. Shut down by their parents and teachers, this group of friends can only rely on each other as they navigate teenage self-discovery and coming of age anxiety with… emotional consequences.
Hilarious yet tragic, Frank Wedekind's infamous play about youth caused riots when it premiered over a century ago. Following last year’s sell-out success 'The Caucasian Chalk Circle', Centrepoint Theatre's Basement Company delivers another fresh take on a modern classic, exploring how young people are shaped for their future by a generation stuck in the past.
NB: This play explores important themes around sex, violence and mental health.
