Ubu Roi (Ubu the King or King Ubu) is a play by Alfred Jarry. It was first performed in Paris at the Théâtre de l'Œuvre, causing a riotous response in the audience as it opened and closed on December 10, 1896.[1][2] 

We supported Newman University in honouring the absurdist nature of the show in a unique and brilliant translation by Bruce Coates who also directed the staging at The Crescent Theatre Birmingham. Utilising acetate based back projection, and almost entirely cardboard props the final result was raucously received by audiences over 3 shows in April 2016.
