Description

A tale of woe and peas.

Woyzeck just can't get a break. He's stuck living in military barracks. He's forced to shave his condescending commanding officer everyday. His wages are pitiful. His girlfriend might be having an affair. And now he is hearing voices. Maybe he's starting to crack? Or maybe it's just because his doctor is trialling a pea-only diet on him? It's far from ideal but his doctor's poking and prodding comes with the reward of some extra money. It's the chance for a better life if Woyzeck can just hold on that little bit longer…

Theatre and dance combine in an exhilarating story about fighting for a better life when everything else seems to be fighting against you. It's also a story that celebrates the West Midlands spirit as a community chorus of one hundred performers and dancers bring this show to life.

Contains strong language, violence and scenes of a sexual nature.

Please note all performances between 19 - 23 June will be Audio Described and Captioned.
