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.

It is timeless, placeless, it shamelessly displays what civilization tries hard to hide.
