Description

Set in 1950s England and based on the controversial 19th-century play Spring Awakening; A Children’s Tragedy by Franz Wedekind, Awakening is a story about the struggles of the transition into adulthood. In a rural Christian town, the teenagers fight against the moral standards which are used to censor them and repress their attempts at sexual discovery and their desire for freedom. Awakening explores the dangers of forced ignorance and deception when it comes to the lives of young people; a group of schoolchildren trying to navigate the unknowns of adolescence leads to disastrous consequences.
