In America, That is to say Nowhere



In America, That is to say No Where: A devised piece inspired by Ubu Roi by Alfred Jarry

Directed by Melanie Stewart, collaboratively written by Brian Grace-Duff

September 5th + 6th at 7:30pm • Performance Garage

In America, That Is To Say No Where, is an original devised work inspired by the revolutionary 19th century play: Ubu Roi, that takes a provocative look at the turmoil created by a tyrannical political figure.

Director Melanie Stewart and writer Brian Grace-Duff collaborated with the 12-member cast of Rowan University students and alumni to develop this movement-driven theatre piece, a shocking and exaggerated look at a gluttonous and child-like dictator who comes to power and wreaks havoc.

Influenced by Alfred Jarry’s Ubu Roi, this new production is satirical yet confrontational as it employs elements of the original play’s plot to explore the current political climate with a larger-than-life approach.

This 60-minute show will be performed September 5th and 6th at the Performance Garage as a part of the 2019 Philly Fringe Festival. General admission is $15 (FringeArts members save 20%) and can be purchased at fringearts.com beginning in late July.
