The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui
    By Bertolt Brecht

    19:45, Tue 7th November 2017 - Sat 11th November 2017 at ADC Theatre
    Michaelmas Week 5

    “Don’t yet rejoice in his defeat, you men!
    Although the world stood up and stopped the bastard,
    The bitch that bore him is in heat again.”

    Chicago. A city of jazz and gangsters, prohibition and poverty. Amongst the murk of the Great Depression, there’s room for a small time crook like Arturo Ui to make a name for himself.

    Ui and his henchmen just want to look after you, to offer protection for workers, for jobs, for businesses. Nothing to fear. But a little bribery here, some harmless corruption there, and soon something much more dangerous takes hold.

    Written in exile in the 1940s, the play is a satirical allegory of the rise of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party in Germany prior to World War II.
