‘There is a part I can’t tell...about the dark I know well’.
Oxford University students bring Broadway’s eight-time Tony Award-winning hit musical Spring Awakening to life this autumn.
Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik’s provocative reimagining of Frank Wedekind’s 1891 play combines an alt-rock score with a narrative fuelled by sexuality, morality and rebellion.
In a desperate bid to understand the adult world, teenagers Wendla, Moritz, and Melchior surpass their naivety in order to discover the truth about their own desires. Despite its 19th century setting, the overwhelmingly contemporary feel of Spring Awakening gives a cathartic sense of control back to the disenfranchised youth.
