The Re­sistible Rise of Ar­turo Ui

Where Sydney - - Where Now Live On Stage -

Aus­tralian act­ing heavy­weight Hugo Weav­ing re­turns to the Syd­ney Theatre Com­pany stage this month in Ber­tolt Brecht’s 1941 clas­sic “The Re­sistible Rise of Ar­turo Ui”. Ar­turo Ui is a small-time gang­ster with a lust for power. In a city shaken by eco­nomic cri­sis and un­der­mined by cor­rup­tion, Ui keeps ris­ing and ris­ing un­til he reaches the very top. When he gets there, he won’t be break­ing the law, he’ll be mak­ing it. This new adap­tion is by Aus­tralian play­wright Tom Wright with STC Artis­tic Di­rec­tor Kip Wil­liams di­rect­ing. The cast also in­cludes Mitchell Bu­tel, Peter Car­roll, Anita Hegh, and Ur­sula Yovich.

Un­til 28 April, Roslyn Packer Theatre, 22 Hick­son Road, Walsh Bay. 9250 1777. syd­neythe­atre.com.au
