Written in 1988 by a group of secondary school students, including Alfred Jarry, as a parody to the stupidity and the grotesque aspect of their physics teacher, KING UBU is an initiate and precursory of the new theatre of the twentieth century. It would influence decisively artistic and thought movements such as the Dadaism, Surrealism, and the Theatre of the Absurd. The play would be later on rewritten by Jarry and premiered in Paris, in 1896 surrounded in an atmosphere of great polemic.
The plot is set in Poland, this is nowhere, as Jarry himself stated in the presentation of the play. Ubu, monstrous character, despot, corrupt and without scruples, murders the king Venceslau and steals Poland’s throne. Enforcing his power in a brutal and blood thirsty way, throughout a series of episodes of the purest absurdity, his policy becomes catastrophic and Ubu, together with his inseparable Mother Ubu, end up escaping by boat to France.
Jarry would write still throughout his life other plays which carry on the saga of Ubu, as Ubu Bound, Ubu Cuckolded, Ubu at the hill.
