October 4-13, 2018
Ives Hall 119
By Georg Büchner
Directed by Paul Draper

Based on a true story, iconic playwright Georg Büchner tells the haunting tale of a poor soldier, Franz Woyzeck, slogging through life in a provincial German town. Desperate to support his girlfriend Marie and their child, Woyzeck earns extra money working menial jobs, including a medical experiment requiring him to eat only dried peas. As his mental health deteriorates, he begins to experience apocalyptic visions. Humiliated by “The Captain”, “The Doctor” and others, Woyzeck begins to feel at odds with the social order. When Marie sleeps with a handsome drum major, his frustration and resentment deepen, leading to a heinous crime.

“Widely considered the first modern tragedy…electrifying audiences with its grit and daring ever since.”

“Misery’s the river of the world in ‘Woyzeck.’ Faced with the flood of suffering in Georg Büchner’s pitch-black tragedy, the only thing left to do is row.” - The San Jose Mercury News

“…a dark, disturbing classic…The story of a working-class soldier driven to madness by poverty, humiliation and jealousy.”
- The Hollywood Reporter
