Joe Murphy directs John Boyega in Woyzeck at the Old Vic Theatre, giving audiences a chance to see the star of the new Star Wars films live on a London stage.

This is an opportunity to revisit Georg Büchner’s classic unfinished play as interpreted by Jack Thorne. For a show left without an ending upon the former’s death in 1837, Woyzeck has had a profound effect on the theatrical world, becoming arguably the most important German play of all time, and its return to the stage in any form is a cause for celebration.

Jealousy is one of the themes of Woyzeck and it is this emotion that makes this one of the most famous tragedies of all. The lead character is a barber in the military who is sentenced to death for a terrible crime – the murder of his partner. Woyzeck himself is based on Johann Christian Woyzeck, a man who committed the very act described in the first half of the 19th century.

Though Büchner didn’t finish the play before he died, many have completed it for him and the story was even adapted into a German film from director Werner Herzog. This new version by Jack Thorne, meanwhile, is the latest in a long line of projects from the acclaimed writer of the West End’s Harry Potter And The Cursed Child.

Thorne’s other credits include his version of The Physicists at the Donmar Warehouse and The Solid Life Of Sugar Water at the National Theatre.

Woyzeck is at the Old Vic Theatre in London from Saturday 25th February 2017.
