Adapted from the Alfred Jarry play by Mike Oleon with Shelley Geiszler, Ubu the King brings Jarry’s seminal satire Ubu Roi to life in all its absurd, grotesque glory. In the hands of five power hungry puppeteer-performers, loveable dirtbag Pa Ubu murders, lies, and farts his way up to the Polish throne—and back down again. Beautifully designed and meticulously realized, Ubu is ridiculous, spectacular and regrettably relevant. Directed by Mike Oleon.
