Splendid Productions’ UBU (30-day streaming video rental)
“Some people would say that UBU did terrible, blooderous things…”
Behold the tale of UBU! He likes power so much he refuses to give it back. UBU! Can you resist the charm of this puffed-up lump as he guffs his way to THE TOP? UBU!!
Watch as this all-conquering buffoon deviously despatches anyone who gets in his way. Who will stop UBU? No one will stop UBU!
Expect the unexpected! … Or the entirely predictable!
Splendid Productions present a brand new creative adaptation of Alfred Jarry’s surrealist classic. We explore power, leadership and ambition with our usual heady concoction of music, laughter, politics, foolishness and hard-hitting theatrical nonsense
