Woyzeck is the story of a young soldier shouldering overwhelming burdens - a young wife, an infant child, and an entire army of men determined to bully him to madness. In an attempt to cushion his meager wages, Woyzeck voluntarily subjects himself to the paid experiments of a demented Doctor who requires him to subside solely upon hopes of scientific revelation and a strict diet consisting exclusively of peas. Woyzeck is a tragedy of helplessness loaded with temptation, existential struggle, and social satire.
Lonesome No More! Theatre's collaboration with Yeaheay, a new live/work space for exhibition and performance in East Hollywood, brings Woyzeck into the home, inviting audiences to sit at the dining room table while watching the play unfold over every square foot of the domestic space.
