King Ubu

Performance Dates

Pointless Theatre presents a take on one of the iconic works of the early avant-garde. King Ubu is a new translation of Alfred Jarry's seminal Ubu Roi, which has been sticking its tongue out at politics, war, and theatre orthodoxy since its premiere in 1896. Hilarious, violent, and absurd, King Ubu promises audiences lowbrow humor, ludicrous language, and full-bore puppet carnage all wrapped up into a funhouse take on classical tragedy.
