Theatre Review: Spring Awakening at The West Yorkshire Playhouse Spring Awakening's first English staging in New York back in 1917 required a court case win before its "pornographic" material was deemed acceptable for public viewing. Over a century later, an equally dark new Headlong adaptation of this controversial play tours the UK, stopping at The West Yorkshire Playhouse where Leo Owen caught the show In keeping with the original German production over a hundred years ago, Anya Reiss' re-imagining of Frank Wedekind's controversial play instantly shocks when the lights come up on a uniformed school boy (Ekow Quartey) furiously masturbating on a toilet. Nicely juxtaposed is the calming sound of the audio track describing the portrayal of the female form in various art gallery exhibitions, providing unexpected stimulation.
