Spring's Awakening

Location: University Theatre

This is the first production of the Theatre Department's 2016-2017 Season:

Spring’s Awakening adapted by Elizabeth Leavitt, Jeremiah Munsey and Kenn McLeod, based on the original by Frank Wedekind.

First performed under heavy censorship in Germany in 1906, the play closed after only one night in New York in 1917 amid public outrage and charges of obscenity. The story traces the dawning sexual awareness of a group of teenagers who, in their painfully funny contradictions, are at once too innocent and not remotely innocent at all. The play remains fresh and unsettling even in our own sex-saturated culture. This adaptation retains the era and ideals of the original, and provokes a closer look at how we talk to our children. Spring's Awakening is produced as part of Regina's City Wide German Expressionism Festival, The Caligari Project.
