What governs humanity to commit inhumane acts? When people looks into Woyzeck’s eyes they do not see an equal. They see an uneducated, unhoused, unethical dog. A man attempting to be human while standing on the brink of destruction.


With social economic equality on the decline and an ever widening gap between the rich and a new underclass, we present a theory which maybe the answer to a number of questions that lie on the lips of society today.

In a new adaptation by Rory Devlin, with stage design by Mille Fischer Christensen, The Woyzeck Theory is a radical new presentation of Georg Büchner's Woyzeck. Join us as we examine our own humanity in detail while paying homage to Brecht’s learning plays with the use of song and dramatic text.
