The Belgrade Young Company presents its second production, Spring Awakening.

“Here I am with a sister who’s been married two years, I’ve become an auntie for the third time and I still have no idea how it all happens … I’m fourteen now. You can’t seriously expect me to believe in the stork.”

Spring Awakening dives headfirst into the confused and tangled mess that can be teenage life. Tackling tough subjects such as homosexuality, abortion, suicide and rape, this classic tale of teenage angst is as explosive now as when it was first written in the 19th Century.

With no one offering answers in a world of repressed and scared adults, how do you find out the facts? For these twelve teenagers, curiosity might just prove fatal.

Spring Awakening will be the second production from the Belgrade’s Young Company, which features some of the city’s most promising young amateur actors.

The Big Conversation is an opportunity for young people, parents and carers to debate the issues of teenage pregnancy and STDs with sexual health experts and members of Coventry City Council. This free event will directly follow the matinee on Sat 12 Nov.

Spring Awakening contains scenes of a sexual nature so we’re recommending it for ages 12+
