'Star Wars' star John Boyega returns to the stage in a gritty tragedy

Some Disney film or other has made John Boyega an A-list name in the years since he last performed on the London stage in 2009. But those who know him solely as the larksome Finn from 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' might be surprised at the heaviness of his vehicle for his theatrical comeback. Georg Büchner's incomplete classic 'Woyzeck' follows a soldier experiencing a breakdown under appalling social conditions. This version – directed by Joe Murphy – is an adaptation by multi-talented 'This is England' and 'Harry Potter and the Cursed Child' scribe Jack Thorne. 

Tickets on sale May 31.
