Frank Wedekind processed the morality befitting urges, life into his plays. He unmasked it as hypocrisy and set it in front of a vision of the world that celebrates life and sexuality. The freedom and beauty of the people that embrace sexuality was only found in the socially excluded: the circus, crooks and whores, even if they appear in a distorted form. The play „Spring Awakening” maintains it’s actuality „because prejudices long thought gone as well as double hypocritical morality still haunt or day to day, through our society, through politics, religion and last but not least through today’s political correctness”, considers the show’s set designer, Helmut Stürmer.
