PLEASE NOTE: IT IS NOT ONLY UNNECESSARY FOR YOU TO HAVE SEEN THE FIRST ONE, IT IS PREFERABLE.
This even nastier and dumber sequel to our nasty and dumb adaptation of Alfred Jarry’s Ubu Roi sees the horrible Ubus visit a place even more depraved and corrupt than the 19th-century Poland they were chased out of in the first play: America. There, trapped in a sequel they never asked for (and are actively trying to destroy), they’ll discover freedom is slavery, knowledge is dumb, and doom looms large on the horizon. Featuring a farting corpse, unnecessary blasphemy, relentless stupidity, and bad jokes, Ubu II (based on Jarry’s Ubu Enchaîné, the third play in the series, just to make things more confusing) is the perfect play to warm your hands by as the world burns.
