Spring's Awakening

by adapted by Kenneth Nowell

directed by Charmian Creagle

SPRING'S AWAKENING depicts the onset of puberty as violent and chaotic. Reptilian impulses erupt in children who are terrorized by an adult world sunk deep in neurotic denial. SPRING'S AWAKENING is no after-school special. One boy has suicidal tendencies as he struggles with his shock over the facts of sexual reproduction and the possibility of flunking at school. Another boy expresses his awakening libido in cool sadism. Masochistic impulses appear in a young girl whose mother still asserts that a stork delivers babies. This clash between children and adults unfold in an absurdist atmosphere that foreshadowed Brecht and Beckett.
