New play from Cardboard Citizens: Woyzeck

May 21 2009
the UK‘s only homeless people‘s professional theatre company presents Büchner‘s masterpiece of paranoia Cardboard Citizens, the UK's only homeless people's professional theatre company, has a new play on, Woyzeck - a revival of the company's critically acclaimed 2003 production of Büchner's classic play. The story of a man plagued by haunting voices and a paranoid fear of conspiracy, it centres around the eponymous Franz Woyzeck as he tries to make sense of things and fails. Struggling to support his wayward girlfriend Marie and their young child, he lends his body to medical experimentation. His distrust and anger spirals until one day, in an attempt to make the real and imagined voices stop for good, he takes a knife... There will be forums and talks after many performances (from 26th February to 15th March) on medical and scientific themes raised by the play. Performances will be 7.30pm Monday-Saturday, with 3pm matinees on Saturdays 8th and 15th March.
