Georg Büchner's modern classic Woyzeck has been radically
re-imagined as the haunting story of a condemned man desperate to uncover the truth in a dangerous world.
Starring James Kautz (Artistic Director of The Amoralists), No-Win's production places Woyzeck within the claustrophobic confines of a hospital. Tormented by the figures of his mind, memory and reality, he struggles to understand why he is being held, and must finally face the terrible truth of what he has done. Using Büchner's original dialogue, No-Win examines the end of a man's life through the lens of his own insurmountable madness in this riveting production of one of the most acclaimed and influential plays in the history of German theater.
Along with James Kautz (The Pied Pipers of The Lower East Side, The Bad and the Better), the cast includes Alessandro Colla (Richard III with Shakespeare in the Parking Lot, Hamlet with Bryant Park Shakespeare), Evangeline Fontaine (Twelfth Night with Shakespeare in the
Parking Lot), Mackenzie Knapp, Isreal McKinney Scott and Jason Wilson.
The production team includes Alfred Schatz (Set Design), Evan Roby (Lighting Design), Lux Haac (Costume Design), Jeanne Travis (Sound Design) and Kayla Tate (Production Stage Manager).
Jeremy Duncan Pape holds an MFA in directing from the New School for Drama and a BFA in acting from Philadelphia's University of the Arts. His directing credits include Carlos Cisco's The Last Days, Bill Winegardner's Waste of Space and William Whitehurst's Knuckleball, which won Best Drama and Best Overall Production at the 2008 San Francisco Fringe. Jeremy's directing and design work was seen in the Amoralists' critically acclaimed 2008-2011 seasons at P.S. 122 and Theater 80. From 2006-2010 he was the Associate Artistic Director and Technical Director of EndTimes Productions.
Currently, Jeremy is the Production Manager for The Amoralists and Rattlestick Playwrights Theater, and the founding Artistic Director of No-Win Productions.
"Knuckleball, sharply directed by Jeremy Duncan Pape, is the best dramatic work I've seen at any fringe," raved the San
Francisco Bay Guardian. NYTheatre.com praised Knuckleball as well and said "Parsons and Merrick-with Jeremy Duncan Pape's sure-handed direction-are entirely human and terrifically compelling for the entire show."
No-Win Productions is a theater company interested in new and adaptive works that embrace humanity's struggle against obstacles that cannot be overcome. Woyzeck, FJF is the company's inaugural production.
New Ohio Theatre is a two-time OBIE Award-winning presenting venue that serves Manhattan's most adventurous theatre audiences by developing and presenting the boldest, most innovative work of today's vast independent theatre community. They believe the best of this community, the small artist-driven ensembles and the daring producing companies who operate without a permanent theatrical home, are actively expanding the boundaries of where
American theatre is right now and where it's going. New Ohio Theatre nurtures, strengthens, and promotes this community; as they reestablish the West Village as a destination for mature, ridiculous, engaged, irreverent, gut-wrenching, frivolous, sophisticated, foolish, and profound theatrical endeavors. The theatre is accessible from the #1 train to Christopher St. or A, B, C, D, E, F or M train to West 4th St. For info visit www.NewOhioTheatre.org.
