Papa Ubu wants power. Mama Ubu wants it for him. He’ll risk everything to wrestle the crown from the King in a glorious coup. It’s a pity the Ubus are so stupid, greedy and most likely insane. But when has that ever stood in the way of ambition?


The Young Company present Ubu Roi, a riotous comedy of high ambition and the lowest of humour. Think of Macbeth, re-imagined by Monty Python.
