"I hear your heart beat Wendla. No matter where I am, I hear it beating."
Winner of 8 Tony awards, 4 Oliviers and a Grammy for best original cast album, Spring Awakening redefined the boundaries between music and theatre with its fusion of adolescent angst-fuelled anthems.
A group of emotionally unprepared teenagers try to understand their strong, new, thrilling and scary feelings. What's right and what's wrong? What are the rules? How far can they be pushed and what happens when you break them? Desires, emotions and hormones smash and explode in this hard hitting punk-rock musical.
To celebrate the Year of Young People, Dundee Rep is delighted to offer an exclusive £5 AT 5PM ticket price for students and young people aged between 15-26 years for the performance on 23 March.
