By Bertolt Brecht
Translated by Jennifer Wise
Directed by Christopher Niess

High energy and stakes rock this gangster world to the core when Arturo Ui climbs to the top of the crime ladder in this irresistibly fascinating look at a stylized 1930s Chicago and the corruption big cities foster.

A highly satirical allegory of Hitler’s rise to power and domination in Nazi Germany, The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui follows mobster Arturo Ui, who controls the cauliflower trade in 1930s Chicago by ruthlessly disposing of any opposition. Will anyone be able to stop him or will terror and bloodshed ensue the actions of one man? Through Bertolt Brecht’s trademark style of epic theatre, audiences will be invited to contemplate the dangers of greed, political manipulation and power mongering.
