Guest performers Rough House (Chicago) return to EMP and Baltimore with Ubu the King - Alfred Jarry's 1896 masterpiece of absurdo-surrealism, elaborately retold with original music and over 70 stunning hand-crafted puppets. UBU THE KING brings Jarry’s seminal satire to life in all its absurd, grotesque glory. In the hands of five power hungry puppeteer-performers, Pa Ubu murders, lies, and farts his way up to the Polish throne – and back down again. Beautifully designed and meticulously realized UBU THE KING is ridiculous, heartbreaking, and spectacular.
