Washington and Milwaukee! Detroit! Toledo! Pittsburgh! Cincinnati! Philadelphia! Columbus! Charleston! and New York!
They all demand protection! And no ‘Phooey!’
No ‘That’s not nice!’ will stop ...
About the show
What happens when there are no more heroes? What happens when supervillains are the only ones who can offer you protection? What happens when good people stand by and do nothing?
In Brecht's The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui we see Evil seizing control of a fantastical Chicago through corruption, murder, butchery, and extortion. Big business, City Hall, the police, the masses and the Supreme court - one by one they fall to the diabolical mastermind at the heart of the darkness, until his rise to power as gangster emperor is complete.
Written by Bertolt Brecht
Directed by Logan Hillier
