(Now Closed) U.B.U.

U.B.U. - A cautionary tale of catastrophe!

Filth. Freaks. Farts. Everything theatre should be. Also, there will be puppets. Because everything’s better with puppets.

Pa Ubu wants to be king. Ma Ubu wants to queen. With their taste for murder and mayhem, how hard can it be? A bizarre and hilarious adaptation of Alfred Jarry’s UBU Roi, U.B.U. is a bawdy, satirical and haunting glimpse into our future which forces us to ask “How bad is bad enough?” U.B.U. is a frantic explosion of everything bawdy, childish and silly. It is glitter and garbage, puppets and poo. Witness the impending doom of our planet from criminal negligence and exploitation… but in a funny way!

U.B.U. is a brand new, devised adaptation of an old classic by nine multi-skilled performers. The show is a lot of fun and silliness with a deeper message about climate change and environmental mismanagement.

Presented by Tooth and Sinew in association with KXT’s PopUpStairs Program, U.B.U. plays 10th  – 21st Sep 2019, Bordello Room, Level 4, Kings Cross Hotel. Tickets here.
