Ubu Roix Presented by No Exit Theatre Collective

Join Houstonians Robert Malbrough, Chris Gibson, and Geoffrey Hellauer Geiger in No Exit Theatre Collective's digital production of Ubu Roix April 1 to 4. This new adaptation of the absurdist classic Ubu Roi by Alfred Jarry brings the grotesque misadventures of Poland’s second-worst monarch to the most revolting video conferencing platform known to man: Zoom. Profanity, puppetry, stop-motion animation! The cast features Chris Gibson as Papa Ubu, Shelby Gilliam as Mama Ubu, Tyler Riley as Bodurè, Geoffrey Hellauer Geiger as Coccyx/Pile, Sean Devare as The Kings/The Captain, Rachel Weekley as Buggerlaus, Courtney M. McClellan as General Ermey, Werner H. as The Bear. This production is directed and designed by Robert Malbrough, co-designed by Rachel Weekley, and technical designed by Sarah Herdrich and Daisy Phillips. [Organizer's description]
