Bede’s drama is back. After their triumphant Tartuffe and their moving and powerful Laramie Project they are returning to Edinburgh with that timeless classic The Resistable Rise of Arturo Ui by Bertold Brecht. Updated from 1940s gangster Chicago to 1940s gangland London. It’s a satirical parody of the rise to power of Adolf Hitler. However, it is still equally relevant today with parallels to... well you choose – any angry, moronic ruthless leaders’ rise to power. It’s fun with a hard-hitting message. Come and see it!
