Chicago! A city of jazz and gangsters, prohibition and poverty. 

Amongst the murk of the Great Depression, there’s room for a small time crook like Arturo Ui to make a name for himself.

 

Ui and his henchmen just want to look after you, to offer protection for workers, for jobs, for businesses. Nothing to fear. But a little bribery here, some harmless corruption there, and soon something much more dangerous takes hold.

 

Brecht’s satirical masterpiece about the rise of a demagogue will be given a new translation by Pulitzer, Olivier and Tony Award-winning American playwright, Bruce Norris. Lenny Henry makes his Donmar debut as Arturo Ui.

 

The Donmar Warehouse is a 250-seat subsidised (not for profit) theatre located in the heart of London\'s West End which under the artistic leadership of Sam Mendes, Michael Grandage and now Josie Rourke has a reputation as one of the UK\'s leading producing theatres. It has presented some of London\'s most memorable award-winning theatrical experiences, as well as garnered critical acclaim at home and abroad.
