Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

A new translation by Rob Melrose of the classic play Ubu Roi by Alfred Jarry. Ubu Roi has divided audiences into passionate, dissenting camps since its 1896 premiere in Paris, an event that changed theater forever. With the first word of the play the audience erupted in pandemonium. People stormed the exits as fist fights broke out. Ubu was a scatological mockery that challenged assumptions about good taste and good behavior, a performance that questioned the very nature of theater and divided the audience between those who came expecting the ordinary and those who came hoping for the extraordinary. Now Ubu is seen as the precursor of the theatre of the absurd and playwrights like Eugene Ionesco, Samuel Beckett and Jean Genet. Rob Melrose's new translation brings out the Shakespearean echoes of Ubu while using words from classic American comedy to get the Punch and Judy feel.
