Department of Theatre and Dance presents “Woyzeck”
UC Davis’ ‘Woyzeck’ features madness, murder
Special to The Enterprise
February 13, 2015
Neil LaBute’s intriguing adaptation of Georg Büchner’s “Woyzeck”
will be presented by the UC Davis department of theater and
dance Feb. 26-March 8 on the Main Stage of Wright Hall. “Woyzeck”
is a theatrical examination of a young man who is abused by a
power structure that dehumanizes him, driving him to madness and
Woyzeck is the original bad-luck kid. Poor guy can’t get a
break to save his soul. Woyzeck is the subject of the sumptuous
play, directed by Granada Artist-in-Residence Bob McGrath,
currently on stage at UC Davis’ Main Theatre.
Congratulations to Bob McGrath and his fine cast and crew on this
well-deserved review from the Davis Enterprise.
