The Tony Award winning musical adaptation of a 19th Century play about oppressed adolescents trying to find their voices and sense of truth. Based on Wedekind’s most famous play written in 1891, the musical version won many awards in New York when it was first produced in 2006. The anguish and searching that teenagers go through as they journey towards their own sense of truth is as relevant today as when the play was first written. Set to contemporary music, the adaptation brings the piece into the 21st century. Highly recommended for school audiences who would gain inspiration and understanding from “the must-see musical of a new generation”.
