Úbú Rex

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Mícheál Ó Ceallaigh 

  • Adapted / Translated From

    Alfred Jarry 

  • Author Notes

    Aistriúchán ar an dráma 'Ubu Roi'.

  • Notes

    Tháinig an dráma seo le Alfred Jarry chun solais ar dtús in 1896 agus áirítear é mar thús na gluaiseachta amharclannaíochta ‘Absurdist’. Léiríodh leagan de i mBéarla ag an Galway Arts Festival i 2006.

  • Synopsis

    This is the first of three stylised burlesques in which Jarry satirises European philosophies and their absurd practices — in particular the propensity of the complacent bourgeois to abuse the authority engendered by success.
