production information

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.

Winner of the Tony and Olivier awards for best musical, 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.

Cast includes Amara Okereke (winner of 2018 The Stage Debut Award for Best Actress in a Musical for Les Misérables), and Laurie Kynaston (winner of 2019 Evening Standard Theatre Award for Emerging Talent for The Son at Kiln Theatre and West End). Further cast to be announced.

This production is supported by the Ruddock Foundation for the Arts
