THE UBU PROJECT
By Alfred Jarry
Directed by Katherine Jean Nigh
8/6 to 9/13
The power-hungry Ubu and his equally ambitious wife will stop at nothing to gain and maintain power in this classic piece of absurdist theatre inspired by Macbeth . Director Katherine Nigh (They Don’t Pay? We
Won’t Pay! ) brings a particular sense of fun and her own stylistic interpretation to Alfred Jarry’s still-controversial play from 1896, which is uncannily relevant in this election year.
“It is timeless, placeless, it shamelessly displays what civilization tries hard to hide.” –Barbara Wright
