Alfred Jarry's scatalogical satire makes a rare London appearance. Read More >

Set in fictional Poland Ubu Roi tells the story of Ma and Pa Ubu who violently take over the kingdom, become dictators and unleash a reign of mayhem on society.

The irreverent nature of the play and the barbed satire beneath the silliness meant that Ubu Roi caused something of a storm when it first appeared in Paris in 1896.
