McALLEN - South Texas College (STC) Theatre is ready to present Georg Büchner’s play Woyzeck which will run June 22 – 24 at 8 pm. There will also be a Sunday 2 pm matinee on June 25 at STC’s Cooper Center for Communication Arts Main Stage, located at 3201 W. Pecan Blvd.

Woyzeck is a soldier, father, and a God-fearing man. He also happens to see visions of apocalyptic violence, and slowly begins to lose his mind as he tries to fulfill the needs of his wife Marie and a son born out of wedlock. At the same time his captain berates him for lack of morality due to his being part of the proletariat, and a doctor uses him to conduct ludicrous experiments that take a toll on his sanity.

All the while, shadows and red rivers plague his mind, promising him a tragedy that he cannot escape. A dark parable that illustrates frightening madness, impossible pressures, and the devastating truths of humanity through the eyes of Woyzeck all set against the backdrop of The Great Depression.

General admission tickets cost $5. This play contains strong language and mature themes. Parental discretion is advised. June 25 matinee production will be interpreted in American Sign Language.

Ticket cash purchases can be made one hour before the performance at the box office or in advance online using a credit or debit card at
