Cheek By Jowl: Ubu Roi

Following a sell-out run in 2013, Cheek By Jowl's production of Ubu Roi is being revived at the brilliantly unique Barbican. Performed in French with English surtitles, Alfred Jarry's play was banned after its first performance in 1896. It was considered animalistic, scandalous, and dangerously satirical…now it's considered to be the precursor to surrealism and modernism. Wild, comic, and bizarre, it sets Ubu's spearhead of a revolution within the civilised chic of a bourgeois dinner party. Recommended for ages 16 and over. Running time 1 hour 50 minutes with no interval.
