WOYZECK / THE ENDLESS CYCLE

Genre: Drama
Adaptation By Charlie Biscotto and William Lewis, Directed by William Lewis

 

 

Buchner’s timeless play explores the brutal breakdown of one man, the soldier Franz Christian Woyzeck, at the hands of those around him. As they gradually wall him in over the course of the performance, he struggles to free himself from the punishing restraints of his society through any means necessary.

Through the use of video and a physically charged staging, this new adaptation, by director William Lewis and writer Charlie Biscotto, suggests that his disintegration is part of an “endless cycle” of past, present and future.  We are forced to ask, "Can the cycle be broken?"

 

Featuring actors Tim Cusack in the title role, and Annie Harper Branson of Tin Lily Productions. 

Additional performances by Laura Aristovulos, Daigoro Hirahata,  Jared Miller, Jonathan Harper Schlieman, Jillian Stevens,, and Benjamin Watson.

The production will also feature video design by Anthony Nero and Daigoro Hirahata and original music by Jason Bell.  Designers include Candace Lawrence and William Lewis.  Dramaturgy by Giselle Garcia.
