Claire Trevor Theatre

The Claire Trevor Theatre was originally known as the Village Theatre. The edifice was renovated thanks to a generous contribution by Academy Award-winning actress Claire Trevor and renamed in her honor when the updates were completed. Today, the proscenium theatre is our largest on-campus venue with seating for almost 300 persons.

Care, Cure & Corruption Series

Woyzeck 

By Georg Büchner
Andrew Borba, Guest Director

 

March 5 – 13, 2016
Claire Trevor Theatre

Having fathered an illegitimate child with his lover Marie, feckless soldier Franz Woyzeck takes odd jobs around his small town to provide some extra money for them. One of these is volunteering for experiments conducted by a local doctor, who puts Woyzeck on a diet of peas; this serves to drive him to the brink of madness, and the discovery that Marie is conducting an affair with the local drum major exacerbates the situation. Pushed too far, Woyzeck resorts to violence. Based on the true story of Johann Christian Woyzeck, a lowly soldier in Leipzig, Germany, this remains one of the most enigmatic and influential works of modern theatre. The exploration of the dehumanizing tests Woyzeck was put through to determine if he should be held responsible for his actions, and the implications of these tests, provide the impetus of Buchner’s episodic and radically innovative play.

Evenings: Mar. 5, 10, 11, 12     8:00 pm
Evening: Mar. 9                       7:30 pm
Matinees: Mar. 6*, 12, 13         2:00 pm
