Woyzeck, a poor soldier, spends his pitiable life trying to make ends meet by carrying out meaningless and tedious chores for his formidable captain. Upon realizing that Marie, the mother of his child, has fallen for the Drum Major, Woyzeck progressively succumbs to inner voices of jealousy and dissolution. His apparent insanity takes possession of Woyzeck’s morality, ultimately leading to a tragic end.
Georg Buchner has created an eerie demonstration of one man’s descent into animality in this classic expressionistic play. This lyrical translation reveals the alteration and decent of an individual's mental state in a manner that is both terrifying and intriguing, allowing the audience to intimately experience Woyzeck's journey.
