In a new translation and adaptation by Nicholas Rudall. Sacrificed to powers larger than himself, Woyzeck is one of drama's first anti-heroes. He serves a German captain and makes money by allowing a doctor to experiment on him, but his deeper morality leads him to a tragic end. Nicholas Rudall's new translation, like all of his work in the Plays for Performance series, captures the power of the play for contemporary audiences through its masterly translation.
