Back Woyzeck

Previews from 15 May 2017

The Old Vic

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.
