Star Wars star John Boyega has been immortalised by graffiti artist Aske 19 ahead of his appearance in Jack Thorne’s new production of Woyzeck at the Old Vic Theatre.
The actor gained huge acclaim for this portrayal of Finn in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the latest episode in the multi million pound film franchise.
Boyega will play a young soldier in the production, as the multi-award winning Jack Thorne breathes new life into Woyzeck, one of the most extraordinary plays ever written.
Set in 1980s Berlin. The Cold War rages and the world sits at a crossroads between Capitalism and Communism. On the border between East and West, a young soldier and the love of his life are desperately trying to build a better future for their child.
But the cost of escaping poverty is high, and its tragic consequences unfold in this searing tale of the people society leaves behind.
Aske 19 is a Manchester based graffiti artist, who has been exhibiting his very exciting wall art since 1992.
Wyzeck will start previews at the Old Vic on 6th May 2017. If you would like any further details you can visit the website http://www.oldvictheatre.com/whats-on/2017/woyzeck/
