About The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui

The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui
By Bertolt Brecht. In a translation by George Tabori revised by Alistair Beaton
Duchess Theatre
From 18 September - 12 weeks only

Following a 2012 critically acclaimed sell-out run at Chichester Festival Theatre, The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui will transfer to the Duchess Theatre in September with Henry Goodman once more in the title role.
Arturo Ui is a funny, sharp and thrilling take on the rise of Hitler shot through with razor-sharp wit.
Chicago in the 1930s, the Great Depression - a time of unemployment, fear and corruption, and the perfect time for a small-fry crime boss and his henchmen to make it big, to seize a greater power, an absolute power.

Arturo Ui and his mob of gangsters run protection rackets for both workers and businesses. Soon Ui’s menacing shadow looms large, from the markets, to the docks and across the city itself. You might be with him, you might be against him - it certainly seems you can’t stop him.
