  King Ubu at The Greenhouse Theater Center

King Ubu

The Greenhouse Theater Center
2257 N Lincoln Avenue Chicago

When it premiered in 1896, Alfred Jarry's outrageous parody of Shakespeare's Macbeth was a blast of rude nihilism onto the French theater scene, sticking its tongue out at politics, war and theater orthodoxy. It went on to influence great writers and artists, such as Apollinaire, Artaud and Breton, and led to Surrealism, Dada, the Situationists and even punk rock. Featuring lowbrow humor and ludicrous language, King Ubu points out society's failures and injustices and warns about civilization's susceptibility to subversion and collapse through the gluttonous and brutal character of Papa Ubu, who murders the royal family of an immaterial Poland in order to ascend to the throne. Catch this raucous staging of the frighteningly familiar work at Chicago's Greenhouse Theater Center.
