Franz Woyzeck is a soldier and serves a captain as a barber. Driven by need and existential fears, he allows himself to be turned into a medical test subject by a doctor who makes him eat only peas. And then there are the voices and symptoms of schizophrenia that plague him. And Marie, Woyzeck's lover and the mother of his child, who falls in love with the drum major. In Büchner's drama fragment, all the characters are driven, are oppressors and oppressed, paying the price of human existence. Victims and perpetrators. At just 23 years of age, Georg Büchner began writing his play Woyzeck as a visually powerful - and for its time - visionary piece. The unfinished fragment is one of the most famous texts in German literature.This content has been machine translated.
