Woyzeck

 


This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Plagued by haunting voices and a paranoid fear of conspiracy, Franz Woyzeck is a man trying to make sense of things and failing. Struggling to support his unfaithful girlfriend Marie and their young child, he lends his body to medical experimintation. His distrust and anger spirals until one day, in an attempt to make the real and imagined voices stop for good, he takes a knife.....

Hailed by 20th century critics as the first truly modern play, George Buchner's masterpiece written in 1837 remains powerful and relevant both in content and style. With its staccato, filmic style, one scene bleeding into another, it penetrates soul and psyche like a blade through flesh.

Following Woyzeck there will be a Forum Theatre session, which will give audience members the chance to pratically and creatively engage with the issues and ideas contained in the play.
