Taking on the topic of sexual oppression at the turn of the 19th century, Frank Wedekind’s Spring Awakening drives straight through the soul of puberty. Gorilla Theater Productions’ contemporary approach to the coming-of-age story confronts themes of reproduction, rape and suicide so incisively it’s subtitled A Children’s Tragedy.

Through May 14. $10-15, times vary. Gorilla Theater 1717 Allied St., Ste. B. gorillatheaterproductions.com.
