A New Wolsey Young Company Production

By Georg Büchner
Adapted by Daniel Kramer
Directed by Rob Salmon

Woyzeck is the heartbreaking story of a young soldier’s descent into madness.

Inspired by real events, Büchner’s unfinished masterpiece remains one of western drama’s most profound and moving explorations of class and morality. Written shortly before his death at the age of twenty three, Georg Büchner’s Woyzeck is often described as the first ‘modern’ play.

Woyzeck tells the story of a poor soldier manipulated and abused by his superiors, turned into a specimen for cruel experiementation at the hands of the medical establishment, and finally betrayed by the woman he loves, with devastating consequences.
