The Woyzeck: Acting Like Mad, Theatrical Niche

Woyzeck, an impoverished underdog, only wants to live life peacefully with his girlfriend and child but he will soon discover that society has other plans for him...

Animal Work and Physical Theatre create a magically dystopian universe. Society's exploitation of its weaker members is robustly critiqued in this fiery production, with an original score to complement the eclectic artistry on show.

Based on the true story of a man who murdered his wife for her infidelity, Georg Büchner's unfinished and fragmentary masterpiece is reworked as The Woyzeck. The original's many characters are consolidated into four archetypes - The Lover, The Oppressor, The Commoner and The Woyzeck.

Acting Like Mad and Theatrical Niche Ltd bring this fantastical re-imagining of Büchner's landmark play Woyzeck to regional venues in early 2013, marking its bicentenary year.

The Woyzeck is an original translation and adaptation by Off West End Award Nominee and Peggy Ramsay Grant Recipient, Sebastian Rex.

'A creative new translation... Rex combines the play's Kafkaesque exploration of class and oppression with a modern articulation of the absurd, and though the production's approach tends towards the comical, it also retains Büchner's poignantly bleak meditations on the nature of the self and of society' (Plays To See ).
