Event description

Description

Roll up! Roll up! Feast your eyes on the world's greatest spectacle: human misery!

Observe lowly soldier Franz Woyzeck as he attempts to support his woman, Marie, and child by becoming a medical experiment for the regimental Doctor. Watch! as Marie becomes captivated by the beautiful but sadistic Drum Major. Gasp! as Woyzeck tries to separate reality from delusion using only his disturbed mind... he has nothing to lose but his family, his sanity, and his life.

With just a minimal stage setup, we present for your pleasure a village full of brutal soldiers, nosey children, straying women, psychotic scientists and dancing animals in an adaptation of Georg Buchner's famous unfinished play, Woyzeck.

Set in a 1920's style Whisky Bar, the play is presented in a cabaret environment where patrons can bring their own nibbles, book a single seat or a group table, buy a Woyzeck themed cocktail, wine or beer and enjoy Brechtian era cabaret songs and poems lead by the intrepid local queen of cabaret, Amie Brûlée. We guarantee you will go home humming a tune after a great night's tantalising entertainment.

The show features a fabulous local Creswick cast and crew in a rollicking ensemble that testifies to community cohesion and creativity. This is community theatre at its best folks. Professionals and amateurs are putting their best foot forward to engage themselves in something that only together they can create. For Love & Peas, we need you, audience members, to come and support, enjoy and laugh with us.
