Wedekind''s play about adolescent sexuality is as disturbing today as when it was first produced

Wedekind''s notorious playSpring Awakeningwas written in 1891 but had to wait the greater part of a century before it received its first complete performance in Britain, at the National Theatre in 1974. The production was highly praised, much of its strength deriving from this translation by Edward Bond and Elisabeth Bond Pablé, ''scrupulously faithful both to Wedekind''s irony and his poetry.''The TimesThis translation ofSpring Awakeningwas first performed at the National Theatre, London on 24 May 1974. For this edition the translator, Edward Bond, has written a note on the play and a factual introduction to Wedekind''s life and work.
Frank Wedekind (1864-1918) had a seminal effect on the development of twentieth-centruy German drama. His plays portray a society riven by the demands of lust and greed, and his powerful writing continues to disturb and shock; his plays were still being refused a performing licence in Britain in the 1960s.
