DYT Presents 'Spring Awakening' at Dublin Theatre Festival 2014

DYT is delighted once again to be presenting work as part of the Dublin Theatre Festival. We will present Wedekinds Spring Awakening at Axis Arts Centre Ballymun October 8th to 11th 2014.

Spring Awakening is a fearless portrayal of the lives of young people growing up in a repressive society. It is a play about discovery, desire and the loss of innocence.

Teenage friends share their insecurities and deepest fears. Children strive to make their parents proud at all costs. Young men and women, curious and confused by unfamiliar impulses, make rash decisions – with heart-breaking consequences.

Though written at the end of the 19th century, this classic of European drama still resonates today. It casts a light on some of our own society’s enduring taboos, and navigates the difficult and often distressing journey through adolescent sexuality.

Following their thoughtful and touching production of I’ve to Mind Her in 2013, Dublin Youth Theatre return to the festival a fresh take on Wedekind’s lyrical text.

With a cast of 14 young people and 4 adult alumni of DYT Spring Awakening will be directed by Hungarian Director Gyuri Vidovszky
