Set in the aftermath of World War I, Bruckner’s classic Pains of Youth is a melancholic tale detailing the lives of a group of highly sexed medical students residing in a boarding house in Vienna. Pains of Youth is a startling representation of an ill-fated, death-haunted generation, showing that neither money nor education guarantees an easy passage through the trials of early adulthood; a fact that may be hauntingly familiar to young adults in Ireland today.

This production is for aged 16+
