Kneehigh: Ubu! A Singalong Satire
Kneehigh returns to it’s roots, exploding Alfred Jarry’s surreal, riot-inducing and weirdly prescient masterpiece.
Ubu, is a wildly entertaning rough-and-ready promenade musical that puts the audience firmly at it’s heart. Part play, part rock gig, part stand-up, part game show, part singalong mass karaoke, Ubu is a thrillingly unique theatrical experience led by a skilled team of Kneehigh stalwarts at their anarchic best.
With a belting Kneehigh band playing a cracking catalogue of classic tunes, all that’s missing is that magical ingredient – you! Come together, howl in protest and sing in hope for a better future.
Kneehigh’s UBU is a joy as an act of resistance. He’ll rise! He’ll reign! Only together will we make Ubu fall!
“A perfect blend of slapstick, pertinent politics and fist-in-the-air singalong. Rousing, riotous stuff!” Mark Kermode
