Bertolt Brecht's epic ensemble piece recounts Hitler's rise to power through the story of a gangster's attempt to take over the Cauliflower Trade in 1930s Chicago.
Chicago gangsters, political corruption, scare tactics and extortion in the vegetable business parallel the players and the maneuvers involved in the Nazi's ascent to power in the years leading up to the Second World War. Arturo Ui's manipulation of terror and apathy for political gain undoubtedly continue Steep Theatre Company's tradition of bringing stories to the stage that strike a chord with the "every person." Jonathan Berry directs.
