U.B.U. – A Cautionary Tale of Catastrophe

Date: 21 Aug 2019

Pa Ubu wants to be king. Ma Ubu wants to queen.

With their taste for murder and mayhem, how hard can it be?

U.B.U. is a frantic explosion of everything bawdy, childish and stupid.

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.

Richard Hilliar directs this Tooth and Sinew production featuring Tristan Black, Lib Campbell, Rachael Colquhoun-Fairweather, Emily Elise, Sam Glissan, Gideon Payten-Griffiths, Shane Russon, Idam Sondhi and Nicole Wineberg.
