Cheek by Jowl present
Ubu Roi
Barbican Centre
Until 22 June


How hungry for power can King Ubu be? At a dinner party, the warm smiles and funny quips soon descend into profanity, debauchery and blitzed brains.

‘Endlessly inventive and wickedly funny’ (Financial Times), this scandalous depiction of a despot sees Cheek by Jowl’s French company return to the Barbican following a successful sell-out run in 2013.

Performed in French with English Subtitles.

Age guidance 16+ (contains adult themes)
