Bertolt Brecht:
The Resistible Rise Of Arturo Ui - new book

ISBN: 9781408179932

ID: 978140817993

Described by Brecht as ''a gangster play that would recall certain events familiar to us all'', Arturo Ui is a witty and savage satire of the rise of Hitler - recast by Brecht into a fictional, small-time Chicago gangster''s takeover of the city''s greengrocery trade in the 1930s. The satirical allegory combines Brecht''s Epic style of theatre with black comedy and overt didacticism. 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. Written during the Second World War in 1941, the play was one of the Berliner Ensemble''s most outstanding box-office successes in 1959, and has continued to attract a succession of major actors, including Leonard Rossiter, Christopher Plummer, Antony Sher and Al Pacino. This version of The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui is by Canadian theatre academic Jennifer Wise. Bertolt Brecht, Books, Entertainment, The Resistible Rise Of Arturo Ui Books>Entertainment, Bloomsbury
