Performance

Ubu the King

When: Tue., July 26, 7:30-9:30 p.m. 2016

On tour from Chicago! Rough House Theater is hitting Detroit 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.

Price: $7 - $10
