Spring Awakening (After Wedekind)

By: Frank Wedekind

Company: UpStaged Theatre Company

Berlin, 1989. Sex, Drugs & David Hasselhoff. The wall stands tall, dividing the city into two strikingly separate worlds, torn apart by civilian riots, sparking political upheaval… Revolution is in the air, but from the shadows of the wall a different kind of uprising is emerging. Wedekind’s classic characters are catapulted to the epicentre of political revolt, in a disturbingly frank, visceral and hilarious reflection of a society too afraid to acknowledge its own true nature. With raw emotion, compassion and energy, Spring Awakening (after Wedekind) holds up a mirror to our time in a brand new reimagining. Set to a blistering 80’s soundtrack, award winning writer-director Will Sherriff Hammond takes the original inspiration for the smash-hit musical, and collaborates with CS Academy to create a vibrant, new version of Wedekind’s classic.
