Martin Crimp’s new version of Ferdinand Bruckner’s play has already received 5 stars in the Independent, and 4 stars in the Guardian and Times. Pains of Youth is a shocking, erotically charged play set in Vienna 1923, in which a discontented post-war generation diagnose youth to be their sickness and do their best to destroy it.
