We all know King Ubu. That deranged dictator we all love to hate.
Impossibly greedy, unstoppably crude, inexorably daft and hell-bent on making the country great again! Sound familiar?
Based by Alfred Jarry’s riot-inducing masterpiece, Kneehigh will let rip with their own version of theatre’s most anarchic creations – KING UBU.
Expect world-class buffoonery in this deliriously unhinged improvised promenade musical (surely the first of its kind!). Featuring some of the most iconic anthems of our times, given a fresh run for their money by a belting Kneehigh band – plus an extraordinary choir of extras, you! – we guarantee this will be a rocking, rollicking riot of ridiculousness that you won’t forget.
He’ll rise! He’ll reign! Only together will we make Ubu fall!
During this performance you will be up on your feet and free to wander, leave your phones on, go to the bar and sing as loud as you can with the rest of the audience.
