The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui – Dundee Rep

Written when Brecht was a refugee in Finland, The Resistable Rise of Arturo Ui charts Hitler’s rise to power as a parable play. Arturo Ui is a wannabe gangster in 1930s Chicago, very firmly in Al Capone’s shadow. But with a bit of muscle from his companions and a few “acting” lessons, a man can run any town. 

The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui features Barrie Hunter and runs from 31st May – 10th June, in venues in and around Dundee.
