Written in 1890 by Frank Wedekind, this play tackled a myriad of issues young people face in society. Still valid today, it is being adapted for today’s audiences by Brad Birch and directed by James Grieve.

The play follows a group of teenage pupils as they grapple with the oppressive society around them. It is a society that refuses to educate them properly, where sex education is minimal, and rights like Abortion are non-existent. Such oppression breeds different dreams and needs, all of which hit these teenagers with a bang at this point in their lives.

On Friday 4th November (after the performance), a Taħdita Teatru will be organised with Brad Birch and James Grieve together with moderator Ramona Depares to discuss the process behind this play, from page to stage.
