    "Have you ever seen a woman's body?"

    Melchior Gabor and Moritz Steifel are, like all sixty-seven children in their class, bogged down with homework in the knowledge that, at the end of the year, seven boys will have to fail. But Melchior and Moritz also have other things on their mind

    When Melchior sends Moritz a ‘twenty-page document entitled “Sexual Reproduction”, embellished throughout with almost life-size drawings illustrating the most revolting obscenities', life for the children changes forever. In a repressive society where parents shield their children from the outside world, the results are disastrous, shocking and, ultimately, tragic.

    Censored for eighty years and controversial even today, Wedekind's Spring Awakening is a tale of sexuality, shame and the abuse of power.
