UBU THE KING
On tour from Chicago! Two nights only in Brooklyn at Cloud City. Rough House Theater is hitting the Big Apple with their production of UBU THE KING– Alfred Jarry's 1896 masterpiece of absurdo-surrealism, elaborately retold with original music and over 70 stunning hand-crafted puppets.
UBU THE KING brings Jarry’s seminal satire to life in all its absurd, grotesque glory. In the hands of five power hungry puppeteer-performers, Pa Ubu murders, lies, and farts his way up to the Polish throne – and back down again. Beautifully designed and meticulously realized, UBU THE KING is ridiculous, heartbreaking, and spectacular.
July 28th and 29th at 7:30. Recommended for audiences 14+.
