THE UBU PROJECT
by Alfred Jarry; directed by Katherine Jean Nigh
August 6 to September 13, 2020
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, in part, by Shakespeare’s 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.
