EgoPo Productions presents Woyzeck, by Georg Buchner, translated by Nicholas Rudall, and directed by Brenna Geffers. The young soldier Woyzeck inhabits a carnivalesque world of mad doctors, brutal military officers, and unfaithful lovers. Subjected to dubious medical experiments and haunted by hallucinations, he descends into madness, gives into his rage, and commits the unthinkable. The sensational, old-world library of the German Society serves as the perfect setting for this ethereal nightmare. One of Western Drama's most profound explorations into the human spirit, this play inspired the famed opera, Wozzeck, by Alban Berg, and the classic film by Werner Herzog.
