Spring Awakening

22 - 26 October

NB: This play explores important issues around sex, violence and mental health.

By • Frank Wedekind
Director • Nathan Mudge
Starring • The Basement Company

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 tragic consequences.

Hilarious yet heartbreaking, 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.

Please be aware that tickets are non-refundable. Any tickets for exchange must be returned to Centrepoint Theatre at least two days prior to the performance date. Under no circumstances will tickets be exchanged after the performance date.
