- Woyzeck [Old Vic]
Woyzeck is a play written by German playwright Georg Buchner.
Classed as a 'working-class' tragedy, it tells the tale of a young man and eventual soldier who suffers psychological trauma, partly caused by his doctor carrying out experiments on him.
People like us are unhappy in this world and in the next: if we made it to heaven, we?d have to help make it thunder.
"For the 2017 Old Vic run, the multi-award winning Jack Thorne breathes new life into Woyzeck, one of the most influential plays ever written, creating for our time what Büchner intended for his: an unforgettable howl of rage. Starring John Boyega (Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens)."
