About this show

Avenue Q's Jordan Gelber stars in the Katharsis Theater Company's world premiere production of The Polish Play: A Conflation of Macbeth by William Shakespeare and Ubu Roi by Alfred Jarry, devised and directed by Henry Wishcamper. In The Polish Play, the idiot-tyrant Père Ubu, encouraged by his wife and the Three Weird Sisters, ascends the throne of Poland by slaughtering the meek King Wenceslas. With the use of puppets ranging from marionettes to grotesque Grand Guignol, The Polish Play features over-the-top graphic violence, including a large scale puppet massacre, choreographed by Qui Nguyen. There is an added matinee on Sunday, February 11 at 2 PM.
