The award winning musical Spring Awakening will play at the Almeida Theatre 30 November 2021 – Saturday 22 January 2022 starring Amara Okereke as Wendla and Laurie Kynaston as Melchior.
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.
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 (Ink, Albion) directs the first London revival of 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.
