Ubu the King
When the morbid appetite for power gets too hard to swallow
Grotesque, gruesome and hilariously absurd, Tinderbox are delighted to present Ubu the King at the MAC, February 2019.
Inspired by Alfred Jarry’s Ubu Roi, which caused a riot in Paris in 1906, Tinderbox dares to bring the primal monster to life through a succulent feast of sheer inventiveness and fearless theatricality.
Gilly Campbell, Drama and Dance Officer at the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, said:
“As Tinderbox’s principal funder, we’re delighted to see the company tackling such an ambitious production and giving audiences here the opportunity to experience a modern take on an acknowledged masterpiece of absurdist, physical theatre. Anarchic, audacious and hugely inventive, Ubu the King promises be one of the most shockingly entertaining theatrical events of the year.”
A feast for the wicked. A deliciously grotesque experience.
