SUMMARY

Chicago. A city of jazz and gangsters, prohibition and poverty. Amongst the murk of the Great Depression, there’s room for a small time crook like Arturo Ui to make a name for himself.

Ui and his henchmen just want to look after you, to offer protection for workers, for jobs, for businesses. Nothing to fear. But a little bribery here, some harmless corruption there, and soon something much more dangerous takes hold.

Written in exile in the 1940s, the play is a satirical allegory of the rise of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party in Germany prior to World War II.

Admission: £9(£12)
