The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui

October 14 - October 18

Written by Bertolt Brecht, translated and adapted by Bruce Norris
Directed by Ralph Janes

Experience what happens when a small-time mobster with ruthless ambition takes control of the gangster underworld in 1930s Chicago. Witness how Arturo Ui’s arrogance and self-importance have a savage effect—matching the rise of Nazism in Germany during the 1920s. This potent and timely satire, is, according to Brecht, not a play about Hitler, but rather a cautionary tale of “the complacency of the people who were able to resist him but didn’t.”

Curtains rise at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday with a 2 p.m. matinée on Sunday.
