In Third Wall Theatre’s first professional production in two years, James Richardson takes us inside the head of the troubled and tormented Woyzeck. We see Woyzeck as a soldier. We see Woyzeck undergoing medical experimentation. We see Woyzeck jealous of his lover’s growing closeness to an attractive drum major.
A woman is brutally stabbed to death! All goes black! We hear a door slam! Woyzeck has committed a heinous act – or has he? Now trapped within a cell (is it an institution or his own guilt?) he re-experiences the past; he is taunted by his colleagues and experimented on by his superiors. The cycle of madness continues.
