Before Büchner wrote Woyzeck , (Cutting Ball’s second show this season), he created Danton’s Death, a searing exploration of the French Revolution, offering some of Büchner’s darkest thoughts about the human condition, “We know very little about each other. We are lumbering, thick-skinned animals, we reach out our hands to touch but the strain is pointless, we blunder about rubbing our coarse skins up against each other. We are very much alone.”
