In 2007, Peter Brook invited Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod to form a group of actors to perform Racine’s ANDROMAQUE. Following that production’s international success, Cheek by Jowl worked with the same French actors on their new production of Alfred Jarry’s UBU ROI.

Donnellan masterfully releases the primal energy of Jarry’s work
Le Monde

Brilliant, moving with physical fearlessness between elegance and hideous indignity.
The Times

The sheer vitality of Jarry’s creation offered a thrilling new point of departure for the company in bringing this extraordinary eponymous figure to the stage.

Produced by Cheek by Jowl in a co-production with the Barbican, London,
Les Gémeaux/Sceaux/Scène Nationale and La Comédie de Béthune – Centre Dramatique National du Nord-Pas-de-Calais.
