Spring Awakening: A Children's Tragedy
By Frank Wedekind
Translated by Jonathan Franzen
Directed by Peter Murphy
Spring Awakening: A Children's Tragedy follows three 14-year-olds in a provincial German village in the 1890s: Wendla Bergmann, a young girl curious about where babies come from and why; Melchior Gabor, a rebellious intellectual with abundant knowledge but with little emotional maturity; and Moritz Stiefel, a struggling student anxious to understand his developing body as he searches for success in school.
