First look at John Boyega and the cast of Woyzeck

The show opens this week at the Old Vic


Images have been released of John Boyega and the cast of Woyzeck in the Old Vic's upcoming production.

Boyega plays the eponymous role in Jack Thorne's reworking of Georg Buchner's 19th century original play. The piece is set in '80s Berlin during the Cold War and tells of a young soldier and his lover who are trying to build a better future for their child.

Boyega is returning to the stage following his turn in the recent Star Wars movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

He is joined onstage by Steffan Rhodri, Nancy Carroll, Ben Batt, Darrell D'Silva, Sarah Greene, Isabella Marshall, David Rubin and Theo Solomon. The show is directed by Joe Murphy and designed by Tom Scutt.

Woyzeck runs at the Old Vic Theatre until 24 June.
