The story of a group of teenagers on the brink of adulthood unfolds over the course of Frank Wedekind's controversial 1906 play SPRING'S AWAKENING. With subject matter ranging from teenage sex, suicide and abortion the play was shocking to its initial audiences, banned in New York, and remains relevant to this day.
SPRING'S AWAKENING was commissioned by New Muses Theatre Company and scheduled to premiere as part of their 2019-20 Season. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the production will be moved to the 2022-23 Season.
