A highly satirical allegory of Hitler’s rise to power and domination in Nazi Germany, The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui follows mobster Arturo Ui, who controls the cauliflower trade in 1930s Chicago by ruthlessly disposing of any opposition. Will anyone be able to stop him or will terror and bloodshed ensue the actions of one man? Through Bertolt Brecht’s trademark style of epic theatre, audiences will be invited to contemplate the dangers of greed, political manipulation and power mongering.

The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui contains strong language, moments of violence, use of prop firearms, simulated gun shots, strobe lighting and haze.
