This production brings Frank Wedekind’s story into the 21st century showing that in a connected world tied together through social media and screens, the taboo of talking to your parents is still prevalent. With a lack of human discussion, information is cropped and filtered and can come across as one-sided and warped, especially in juvenile hands.
They find that through each other they unlock a bold and brave new world – with both beautiful and tragic consequences.
This is Spring Awakening – Reimagined.
November 12th-17th – St. Margaret’s Church of Art Norwich
