Rough House Theater’s Ubu the King
August 1, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$10
Chicago’s Rough House Theater Company is hitting the road like a punk band, touring to eight cities across the Midwest and East Coast with their production of Ubu the King, Alfred Jarry’s 1896 masterpiece of absurdo-surrealism, elaborately retold with original music and over 60 stunning hand-crafted puppets. Rough House will spot in Athens on Monday, August 1st and will show Ubu at 7:30pm at ARTS/West. In a new adaptation by artistic director Mike Oleon, Rough House’s Ubu the King brings Jarry’s seminal satire to life in all its absurd, grotesque glory. Rough House’s Ubu is ridiculous, heartbreaking, and spectacular. Rough House Theater Company is committed to connecting individuals and communities through art that celebrates the weird things that make us unique, and the weirder things that bring us together. Please note that this performance is for ages 16 and above.
