Are you getting your recommended daily allowance of fruits and vegetables? How about murder and mayhem? Slapstick and silliness? Kill all those birds with one tommy gun at the original nimbus workshop performance production of The Irresistable Rise of Big Daddy Ubu, April 10-27 in Minneapolis.
This unlikely slapstick comedy shows the vile, seedy underbelly of 1930's Chicago - in a funhouse mirror. The vicous, murderous gangs of Big Daddy and Ma Ubu will stop at nothing to overthrow the Artichoke Alliance and place the entire city under their own fat thumbs. As the play unfolds, the Ubus lie, cheat, murder and let Big Daddy's own conscience take the fall for their dastardly deeds. This new piece is a crazy blend of Bertolt Brecht and Alfred Jarry, retold and funked up.
