Spring Awakening: The Play


by Frank Wedekind
Adapted by Joel G. Fink
Directed by Christine Adaire

The strict rules of a small German town forbid any discussion of sex. How, then, are teenagers Wendla, Melchior, and Moritz to make sense of the new hormones raging through their bodies? As spring turns to summer, each rebels against their repressive parents and teachers . . . with devastating consequences. A pointed indictment of ignorance, power, and what happens when sexuality is policed, this seminal 19th-century play inspired the 2007 Tony Award–winning musical of the same name.

*Please note: This play explores both the awakening and repression of sexuality, and the consequences when these two forces collide. This production contains gun shots, sexual content, violence, suicidal ideation, references to abuse, and veiled references to abortion. If you would like additional information about anything listed here, please call our Box Office at 415.749.2228.

Anon(ymous)


by Naomi Iizuka
Directed by Bob Shryock

Faceless. Nameless. Anonymous. In the vast melting pot of contemporary America, a teenaged refugee like the newly arrived Anon can often feel alone, lost, and a dime a dozen. To reconnect with his past and forge a new identity, he must journey across his new home, evading the exploitative businessmen, clueless government officials, and well-meaning humanitarians that lie in wait. Playwright Naomi Iizuka’s poetic adaptation of Homer’s Odyssey asks us to look past the rhetoric to the human beings yearning to be seen.
