STAR WARS actor John Boyega will go back to ‘where it all started’ after confirming he has landed a role in a new production of Woyzeck at London’s Old Vic theatre.
The 24-year-old will appear in Jack Thorne’s new version of Georg Buchner’s play which will be directed by Joe Murphy and run from March 7 – April 15, 2017.
“Can’t wait to team up with the legend that is @jackThorne and play the title role of Woyzeck in a new and exciting adaption at the Old Vic,” he wrote on Instagram today (May 4). “Theatre is where it all started for me and I can’t wait to be this close to the audience taking them on an incredible journey through this amazing play! See you soon London.”
Woyzeck deals with the dehumanising effects of doctors and the military on a young man’s life.
