A group of adolescent students in a provincial school
struggle with the age-old problem of growing up. One minute they're
children playing, the next worried students trying to get their
homework done and pass their exams. And on top of that there are
hormones! Parents and teachers do what they think is right but are
their students / offspring getting the information they need?
Wendla Bergmann, played by Amy Kemp, certainly isn't. Her mother
still talks of babies being delivered by the stork! And the tree
symbol in the background - is it the tree of 'Forbidden Fruit', of
'Knowledge' or of 'Life'?
This heart-rending tale, though tragic along the way, ends with
a strong ray of hope for the future.
This play premiered in 1906. It was also made into a successful
Broadway musical in 2006, and the musical version has previously
been performed in Yeovil.
Doors open 7:15pm, show starts 7:45pm.
