In 2007, Peter Brook invited Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod to form a group of actors to perform Racine’s ANDROMAQUE. Following that production’s international success, Cheek by Jowl worked with the same French actors on their new production of Alfred Jarry’s UBU ROI.
The sheer vitality of Jarry’s creation offered a thrilling new point of departure for the company in bringing this extraordinary eponymous figure to the stage.
