Theatre Studies trip to Almeida Theatre

On Wednesday night the Year 12 and Year 13 Theatre Studies students visited the Almeida Theatre where they saw a musical theatre adaptation of Wedekind’s ‘Spring Awakening’. The staging was strikingly innovative and the young actors playing a group of nineteenth-century teenagers rebelling against a censorious society have inspired fascinating post-show discussions about how much their haunting performances resonated with a contemporary audience.
