Melchior’s restless, Moritz is suicidal, and Wendla just wants to know how babies are made. As their lives intertwine, they discover unknown desires and tragedy is inevitable.
The Edinburgh University Theatre Company returns to Wedekind’s classic play with a new naturalistic production. Set in and around a boys’ boarding school, it follows the lives of adolescent students as they discover sex in a society trying to prevent it.
With the play having been turned into a major Broadway musical, and used as the subject for many devised productions, we return to its roots in a production which focuses on Wedekind’s original text. Still as relevant and shocking today as it was when it was first published, Spring Awakening is a gripping story of young love that will keep you enthralled from start to finish.
