Synopsis


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 on 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 rub 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!
