In rehearsal: Woyzeck

Published 25 April 2017

1980s Berlin, and amidst the domestic turpitude of the Cold War, a young soldier and the love of his life try to build a better future, despite being perilously close to being left behind.

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 Büchner intended for his: an unforgettable howl of rage. 

Screen superstar John Boyega stars in the reinterpretation of this powerful classic at The Old Vic, and with rehearsals well underway, we took a sneak peek below into preparations for what promises to be an unforgettable psychological drama.
