Frank Wedekind’s “Frühlings Erwachen” on Stage!
April 24, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
An event every day that begins at 6:00pm, repeating until April 25, 2017
On April 24th and April 25th 2017, the students in German 374, under the direction of Dr. Tin Wegel, will perform Frank Wedekind’s Frühlings Erwachen (Spring Awakening), the 1891 play that shocked Germany by addressing and even showing rape, suicide, and abortion on stage. Folded into these heart-wrenching topics are moments of love, friendship, and the affirmation of life – in a cemetery of all places! Over a hundred years later, all of these topics continue to divide our society and are deserving of our critical attention, which makes this play forever contemporary.
Both performances will begin at 6pm in Toy Lounge, Dey Hall, at UNC, with an approximate run time of 75 minutes. Free of charge, the performance will be in German. Open to the general public.
