Following its critically acclaimed run at the Almeida Theatre, the Olivier and Tony Award-winning musical is screened in cinemas across the UK this November.

Set to one of the most loved scores of the 21st century, Spring Awakening tells a story of adolescent anarchy. 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.
