"The moon is like a bloody blade!"


A nation wakes up from war, the lake sits stagnant and eerie and all the while a record spins. Franz Woyzeck, a young soldier, grapples with his fragmented mind as he sinks deeper and deeper below the surface of reality. Attempting to provide for his illegitimate son and lover; rank and rule conspire to plunge Woyzeck into a kaleidoscopic dreamscape where nothing is as it seems and no one can be trusted.

Following a sell-out 2017 Fringe debut, the award-winning Spies Like Us breathe new life into Buchner’s classic tale with their trademark explosive physical style.
