Class struggle, jealousy, and oppression lie at the heart of Woyzeck, left unfinished at the playwright’s death in 1837. Fate deals Woyzeck one cruel blow after another—poverty, infidelity, demoralization—yet the young soldier determinedly moves on, until desperation pushes him to a final act of violence. As a portrait of a working-class tragic hero, Woyzeck combines German expressionism with radical ideas about 19th century society, resulting in an unforgettable evening at the theatre.
