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.

 

Brecht’s satirical masterpiece about the rise of a demagogue in a new adaptation by Pulitzer, Olivier and Tony Award-winning American playwright, Bruce Norris. Lenny Henry makes his Donmar debut as Arturo Ui.
