iDiOM Theater presents a controversial political satire about the rise and fall of a megalomaniacal blowhard whose bullying, deceit, and treason lead him to power in the nation of… Poland?
iDiOM Theater joins the Bad Hombres and Nasty Women’s Theater Resistance Movement producing a number of performances and readings of this controversial absurdist satire across the country on February 20: Presidents’ Day. Our production continues with performances over three weekends, ending March 11.
UBU ROI originally debuted in Paris on December 9, 1896 and closed the next day amid riots, walkouts, and threats of violence (some of which may have been staged by the plays producers).

The show tells the story of a power-hungry buffoon of a ruler who lays waste to his newly-conquered kingdom thanks to his greed and self-indulgence, and is considered influential on the Dadaist, Surrealist, and Theatre of the Absurd movements.
