Official Description

“…abandon your moral compass and collude with the crass world of King Ubu.”
– NE New Play Alliance

"Ubu Roar"
Translated and adapted by Brenda Withers from Alfred Jarry’s "King Ubu"

Directed by Wesley Savick, Music by Joey Del Ponte.
Produced by Juvenilia, The Suffolk Theatre Department’s professional production initiative for students and alumni, along with the National Theatre of Allston.

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 Ponte [Suffolk ‘18]. A cash bar will be available.
Join the mosh-pit melee of hysterical tyranny, eye-rolling self-inflated ego, and satirical fun!
