Granary Theatre

The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui

Fusing the styles of 1930s Hollywood gangster films with the form of a bloody Shakespearean history play. This is one of Brecht's most theatrical, chillingly comical and timeless works.

Set in 1930s Chicago, Arturo Ui and his henchmen capitalise on the opportunities presented by the Great Depression to prey on the vulnerable businessmen in order to climb to the top. It exposes how one man can win over the hearts of the many by targeting the few. The themes of the play are as relevant today, as when it was first written, as they reflect the populist ideals which are evident in current global politics
