Woyzeck (3 stars)

This article is from 2009.


Three actors jump through (and indeed urinate against) the fourth wall, sometimes with a little too much knowing satisfaction, in this creative adaptation of Georg Büchner’s tragic fragment. The good-humoured and unflappable cast excel at portraying the grotesquery of cuckolded soldier Woyzeck’s world, with some brilliant, if not entirely integrated, music written by Duke Special and Aqualung.

Pleasance Courtyard, 556 6550, until 16 Aug, 2pm, £7–£8 (£5.50–£6.50).


Drama about the descent into insanity of soldier Franz Woyzeck.
