The Resistible Rise Of Arturo Ui

Thursday, February 27, 2020 - 8:00pm

Described by Brecht as 'a gangster play that would recall certain events familiar to us all', Arturo Ui is a witty and savage satire of the rise of Hitler- recast by Brecht into a fictional, small-time Chicago gangster's takeover of the city's greengrocery trade in the 1930s.  The satirical allegory combines Brecht's Epic style of theatre with black comedy and over didacticism.
