Frank Wedekind's play about the dawning of teen sexuality was seen as revolutionary in 1891 Germany and censored until well into the 1950's. The story follows four teenagers as they attempt to navigate growing up in a world where the adults try too hard to shield them from the world. This coming of age story deals with all the hard hitting topics: sex, abuse, suicide, teen pregnancy, homosexuality, masturbation, and suicide. Promethean's production will prove that Wedekind's classic drama is up-to-date as we are dealing with the same issues to this day.
