Photo Flash: Take a look at Star Wars’ John Boyega in rehearsals for Woyzeck

The multi-award winning Jack Thorne breathes new life into Woyzeck , directed by Joe Murphy.One of the most influential plays ever written, Thorne creates for our time what Büchner intended for his: an unforgettable howl of rage.

It’s 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.

Casting includes John Boyega (Woyzeck), Ben Batt (Andrews), Nancy Carroll (Maggie), Darrell D’Silva (Doctor Martens), Sarah Greene (Marie) and Steffan Rhodri (Captain).
