THE RESISTABLE RISE OF ARTURO UI
By Bertolt Brecht
Wednesday*–Saturday, April 23–26, 2014 at 8 p.m.
Sunday, April 27, 2014 at 2 p.m.
Chicago in the 1930s during the Great Depression was a time of unemployment, fear, and corruption. It was the perfect time for a small-time crime boss and his henchmen to make a grab for absolute power. Arturo Ui and his mob of gangsters run protection rackets for both workers and businesses. His rise to greatness is looming over the city and it seems he can’t be stopped, whether you’re with him or against him. Written in 1941 by Bertolt Brecht, The Resistable Rise of Arturo Ui is a sharp and thrilling parable of the rise of Hitler, told with a razor-sharp wit.
