O, I’m gonna be wounded.O, I’m gonna be your wound. O, I’m gonna bruise you.O, you’re gonna be my bruise. 

A time to learn. 

A time to rebel. 

A time to love. 

A time to burn. 

Winner of the Tony and Olivier awards for best musical, Spring Awakening tells a story of adolescent anarchy, set to one of the most loved scores of the 21st century. A group of teenagers – silenced and controlled by a censorious society – discover a new world of feeling and freedom outside the classroom, with beautiful and devastating consequences. 

Almeida Artistic Director Rupert Goold (InkAlbion) directs Steven Sater and Duncan Sheik’s (American Psycho: A New Musical, Almeida Theatre and Broadway) acclaimed musical, based on the ground-breaking and once-banned 19th century play by Frank Wedekind, in its first London revival since the 2009 UK premiere.

This production of Spring Awakening is supported by The Ruddock Foundation for the Arts.

Performed by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe) Limited.
