SARAH GREENE JOINS JOHN BOYEGA IN WOYZECK (5 FEBRUARY 2017)

Star Wars star John Boyega will be joined in the cast of Woyzeck by Sarah Greene, Nancy Carroll, Ben Batt and Steffan Rhoddri at London's Old Vic Theatre. The new version of Georg Buchner's classic, by the multi-award winning Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child), runs from 13 May to 24 June 2017.

Jack Thorne breathes new life into Woyzeck, one of the most extraordinary plays ever written. It's 1980s Berlin. The Cold War rages and the world sits at a crossroads between Capitalism and Communism. On the border between East and West, a young soldier and the love of his life are desperately trying to build a better future for their child. But the cost of escaping poverty is high, and its tragic consequences unfold in this searing tale of the people society leaves behind.

John Boyega plays Woyzeck. The recipient of the 2016 BAFTA Rising Star Award and the Chopard Trophy at Cannes, John was most recently seen in Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015). His theatre credits include Six Parties (National Theatre), Category B (Tricycle Theatre), Seize The Day (Tricycle Theatre) and Detaining Justice (Tricycle Theatre). His film credits include Half of a Yellow Sun (2013), The Whale (2013), My Murder (2012), Attack the Block (2011, SXSW Audience Award) and Da Brick (2011), and television credits include Becoming Human and 24: Live Another Day.

Sarah Greene plays Marie. Tony and Olivier Award nominated actress, and winner of the IFTA and Irish Film Board Rising Star Award, Sarah Greene is arguably best known for her recurring role as Hecate Poole in the Showtime/Sky Atlantic series Penny Dreadful. She will next be seen as one of the leads in the TV drama series Ransom, and recently starred in the SundanceTV Easter Rising drama Rebellion. She has also had an exceptional stage career, her most notable stage performance was in Michael Grandage's production of The Cripple of Inishmaan, performed in both the West End and Broadway.
