Alfred Jarry’s UBU ROI - in a new version by Ryan Hay

THE BYRE // 17th-18th APRIL // 7:30pm // £8

Ma and Pa Ubu have been plotting for years, and they've finally pulled it off. They've lied their way to the top and they're about to become actual ROYALTY. But after their umpteenth orgy in the royal palace, will their repugnance and their pride come back to bite them? Ubu Roi is the play that caused riots in the audiences of its early performances in Paris. It is an anarchic scatological satire on power and excess, innovatively presented through dance, film, text, and music from the team that brought you The Bacchae (2017).
