Büchner’s tale of military, murder and mental deterioration is transported to 1980s Cold War Berlin in this new adaptation by Jack Thorne. Starring John Boyega and directed by Joe Murphy.

Prefiguring naturalism, expressionism and modernism, Woyzeck is one of the most extraordinary plays ever written. A young soldier, played by John Boyega, is desperately trying to build a life with his family. But a tense, conflicted setting – here embodied by the divide between East and West Berlin – interferes, with tragedy ensuing.
