From the publisher

Translated by Neil Bartlett

Alfred Jarry's riotous, ground-breaking play, was a sensation upon first staging. This modern adaptation, which formed the basis of a short film, Roi, directed by acclaimed author, Neil Bartlett, brings a modernist classic to a contemporary audience. This bonkers and hilarious new translation of Ubu Royale was produced during the fever dream of lockdown. It features bodily incident and function. It is gloriously chaotic but, as Neil Bartlett so rightly says, consistency is for losers.
