Dirt poor, with his woman, Marie and a child to support, lowly soldier Franz Woyzeck has agreed to become a medical experiment for the regimental Doctor. But is it his diet of peas that leads him into the forest with a knife, or the rumours of what Marie has been doing with the peacocking Drum Major? With nothing but a trunk-full of junk, three talented performers piece together the whole story in an exhilarating mix of comedy, puppetry, tragedy and song.
