Woyzeck at Nottingham Playhouse from April 12-14

A NEW adaptation of Georg Büchner’s Woyzeck can be seen at Nottingham Playhouse from April 12-14.

‘Does violence breed violence’ is the central question in Büchner’s powerful story of Woyzeck, the poor and low ranking soldier who is forced to sell his body for scientific research in order to support his family, but which ultimately leads him to commit a terrible crime.

Following the success of The Trial last year, Nottingham Playhouse Youth Theatre is pleased to announce that this year’s production is a new adaptation of German dramatist Georg Büchner’s Woyzeck.

Woyzeck is a challenging, unusual and rarely staged work which does not naturally lend itself to a huge Youth Theatre cast.

However, this newly commissioned version, adapted by Robin Kingsland, has made it possible to perform as an ensemble piece utilising the 19-strong cast.

The piece will be performed in the Youth Theatre’s trademark modern, experimental and physical style and is suitable for audience members aged 12 and over.

Tickets are £5 (concessions and under 26s £4). Call the box office on 0115 941 9419.
