Spring Awakening was ahead of its time. It questions authority, education and parenting. It subverts accepted views on teenage pregnancy, homosexuality, religion and suicide. It attempts to build new views, new ideas and new norms.
Bold undertakings for a play originally written in the 1890s, and just as bold today.
Directed by John Fricker, best known as an actor, and for the role of Marteetee in Your Highness. Produced by Kirsty Fox, one of the founders of award-winning Manchester based Organised Chaos Productions. Spring Awakening is the first show from OutFox Productions.
