Ubu Roi

Causing a near-riot on its opening night in 1896, Ubu Roi is the tale of the ultimate man who shouldn’t be king. Ubu is as ridiculous as he is brutal, a scatological scene stealer whose unchecked ambition is as blood-starved as it is misguided. And, according to the play’s director Betsy Tucker, the story of his brief rise and rapid fall is full of hearty laughs and lasting lessons.
