Kneehigh's Ubu - A sing-along satire.

Kneehigh's Ubu - A sing-along satire.

Shoreditch Town Hall · 04 DEC - 21 DEC

Based on the play by Alfred Jarry

Overview

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!

Critic reviews

This is Kneehigh going back to their roots as exuberant physical performers and it is both joyous and immensely skilful
