Presented by The Midnite Youth Theatre Company

By Bertolt Brecht, Translated by Ralph Manheim

Described as 'a gangster play that would recall certain events familiar to us all The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui is a witty and savage satire of the rise of Hitler recast by Brecht into a small-time Chicago gangster's takeover of the city's greengrocery trade.

Using a wide range of parody and pastiche, from Al Capone to Shakespeare's Richard III and Goethe's Faust, Brecht's compelling parable continues to have relevance wherever totalitarianism appears today.
