In America, That is to say Nowhere: A devised piece based on Ubu Roi by Alfred Jarry

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

February 21 (preview) – 23 at 8PM, February 24 at 2PM • Tohill Theatre

Based on Ubu Roi which was first performed in Paris at the Théâtre de l'Œuvre, causing a riotous response in the audience as it opened and closed on December 10, 1896. It is considered a wild, bizarre and comic play, significant for the way it overturns cultural rules, norms, and conventions. This devised adaptation-- a visceral and shocking work-- is an exaggerated look at a greedy, child-like, tyrannical political figure as it explores the parallels between the original plot and the current political climate.
