Woyzeck - 2017 - West End Tickets, News, Info & More

The multi-award-winning Jack Thorne breathes new life into Woyzeck, one of the most extraordinary plays ever written.

It’s 1980s Berlin. The Cold War rages and the world sits at a crossroads between Capitalism and Communism. On the border between East and West, a young soldier (John Boyega) and the love of his life are desperately trying to build a better future for their child.

But the cost of escaping poverty is high, and its tragic consequences unfold in this searing tale of the people society leaves behind.

The Old Vic will be presenting On Nature as part of Voices Off, a series of talks, conversations, debates and workshops which explore the themes raised by the productions on the main stage. The discussion will take place in The Old Vic auditorium on Thursday 15 June at 5pm.

The very survival into the 21st century of an unfinished play written by a 23-year-old in 1836 is an extraordinary thing, made more extraordinary by the grimness of its subject. Even to call Georg Buchner's text a play - 'the world's first working-class tragedy' - is a bit of a stretch.

The multi-award winning Jack Thorne breathes new life into Woyzeck, directed by Joe Murphy. One of the most influential plays ever written, Thorne creates for our time what Buchner intended for his: an unforgettable howl of rage. The production began previews 15 May and opened last night, 23 May 2017, at The Old Vic.
