Ubu Roi

Jarryšs "king" has never been so deliciously stupid, indolent, and grotesque. His wife has never reached such heights of farcical malevolence as in this wildly imaginative, bawdy and outrageous production of Ubu Roi from Chicagošs acclaimed Hystopolis Theater. Eight puppeteers perform hand, rod and body puppets with a powerful use of surrealist and absurdist imagery. Special effects and visual humor make this a glorious celebration of the 100th Anniversary of Jarry's classic absurdist text
