Screen superstar John Boyega and acclaimed writer Jack Thorne reinvigorate the ground-breaking Georg Büchner drama Woyzeck at The Old Vic.

Legendary in its influential theatrical legacy, Woyzeck portrays the adverse consequences of medical and military intrusion into a young man’s life, manifested in an unforgettable psychological drama.  

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 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. 

Combining the magnificent emerging talents of Star Wars’ Boyega and Harry Potter And The Cursed Child co-writer Jack Thorne, this is a poignant, pertinent “howl of rage” not to be missed.

Please note that this production is suitable for audience members of ages 16+. Contains very strong language and sexual content.
