The "Spring Awakening" Playset

Spring Awakening is a musical based on the play Frühlings Erwachen (Untertitel „Eine Kindertragödie) written by Frank Wedekind 1891 and first performed in 1901. The adult themes of sex and suicide makes it a controversial play. My 16 year old daughter recently read me the play (in English), a three night project. She has seen the modern musical version on YouTube. She had a LOT of questions!  This work aimed at teens makes a good teaching opportunity for parents.  I jokingly suggested a "Spring Awakening play set" to my daughter, and after her suggestions, here it is, based on the play and the musical, for next Christmas....
