“…hilarious, profound and raucous!”
Juvenilia and The National Theatre of Allston present
Translated and adapted by Brenda Withers from Alfred Jarry’s "King Ubu"
Directed by Wesley Savick, Founding Artistic Director of Juvenilia
Juvenilia is a program of The Suffolk University Theatre Department
Juvenilia’s "Ubu Roar" returns to the Modern Theatre for two weekends of raucous revelry and satire. This new translation of Alfred Jarry’s play flirtatiously thumbs its nose in the face of yowling incompetence, greedy self-interest, and the immoral wielding of power. "Ubu Roar" is tons of fun and irreverent as anything recently tweeted.
Juvenilia, Boston’s newest professional theatre company, is comprised almost entirely of Suffolk University alumni. The cast returns from their May premiere for this fully-staged production of snark and mischief, and are joined on stage by a live rock band led by Joey Del [Suffolk ‘16]. A cash bar will be available. All seating is General Admission.
$5 in advance. $10 at the door night of show only. Free with valid Suffolk I.D. night of show only at the door.
