WoyzekLast week, pupils at Wells Cathedral School put on several performances of the dramatic production of  George Buchner’s stage play, Woyzeck, one of the most performed and influential plays in the German theatre repertory.

Written in the mid 19th Century, Woyzeck deals with the dehumanising effects of doctors and the military on a young man’s life. The production tells the story of an asylum inmate who is subjected to fierce experimentation in the name of medical progress. In this adaptation the Wells production moved from a war time setting to a more modern context where the central figure's reality is manipulated and controlled by the staff who ultimately drive this tale to it's tragic end.

Drama teacher, Anna Friend said “The students involved have worked hard to bring this challenging piece of theatre to life and their performances each night were inspiring.”
