Woyzeck by Georg Buchner
Book Description"Written shortly before his death at the age of twenty three, Georg Buchner's Woyzeck is often described as the first 'modern' play. It tells the story of a poor soldier manipulated and abused by his 'superiors', turned into a specimen for cruel experimentation at the hands of the medical establishment, and finally betrayed by the woman he loves, with devastating consequences. In this new adaptation of Buchner's fragmented and visceral text, with original lyrics by Nick Cave, Icelandic director Gisli orn Gardarsson transposes the story to an inhuman industrial landscape, and fiercely reimagines the play's potent fusion of naturalism and expressionism."
