The Awakening of Spring

Saturday, November 17, 2018 at 7:30pm to 9:30pm

Schwartz Center for Performing Arts, Flex Theatre
430 College Ave, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA

By Frank Wedekind
Directed by David Feldshuh
Co-directed by Carolyn Goelzer

"The Awakening of Spring" is Frank Wedekind's tragicomedy of teenage sex written in 1891, and censored in whole or part for more than half a century. Abortion, masturbation, rape, suicide, violence, homosexuality, repression and the dangerous chasm between ideologically imprisoned adults and innocent children on the brink of learning about the world is explored with originality and daring in this revolutionary play. 

This will be the final project for PMA 3609.
