Woyzeck in Winter image

Woyzeck in Winter
13–16 Sep, Theatre

Woyzeck in Winter opened at Galway Festival and arrives here in September. It ‘brilliantly unites two works that are masterpieces in their own right… the juxtaposition is intellectually and emotionally stimulating’ (★★★★ The Guardian).

Patrick O’Kane’s powerful singing and Camille O’Sullivan’s extraordinary acting creates ‘terrific theatre’ (Irish Independent). Emma Rice (Artistic Director of Shakespeare’s Globe) describes the performance as 'phenomenal, epic, brutal, poetic, and absolutely stunning.’
