Toy Box's adaptation is set in a small Midwestern town in the midst of winter and at the depths of the current recession. Woyzeck scrounges for work, battles with paranoia, drinks his breakfast, and struggles to provide the bare essentials for his family. Ultimately, Woyzeck watches his dignity and sanity slip away as he wrestles with the painful realities of life.
Woyzeck is Toy Box Theatre Company's 10th full-scale production and their third adaptation of a classical work. Toy Box's previous productions have been awarded 'Excellence in Playwrighting' from The New York International Fringe Festival, 'Best Original Score' from The New York Innovative Theatre Awards and have recently received a second nomination for 'Best Original Score' from The New York Innovative Theatre Awards.
Performances on October 24 and October 31 will be at 3 p.m. and will be followed by a champagne toast and talk-back with the director, musicians, cast, and crew.
