The original 1891 play on which this 2007 Tony- and Olivier-winning musical is based was banned in Germany for a time. No surprise, since the portrayal of callow late-19th-century youth transitions from superficial innocence to dramatic, explosive emotional explorations (not to mention abortion, rape, abuse and other physical disturbances and manifestations).
