The Brockley Jack Studio
In 1890 Frank Wedekind wrote a play to expose German society’s hypocrisy towards sexuality. Spring Awakening is the only play Wedekind never changed.
Depicting teenage sexuality, education, homoeroticism, suicide and abuse, and pitting this against an unrelenting repression that leads to tragedy, Spring
Awakening was often labelled pornography. This play has been updated so it is as relevant today as when it was written.
For 16 years and over only.
You can have a drink and meal in the Brockley Jack Pub downstairs from the Theatre
