We get the leaders we deserve

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.

Hugo Weaving returns to STC in this powerhouse role. Written in 1941 as a cautionary satire on the rise of Hitler, Bertolt Brecht’s play is both thrillingly sharp and riotously funny. It has the wit, murder and musicality of a gangster movie while asking a very political question – how do we let a man like that come to power?

Artistic Director Kip Williams brings a bold, visually inventive vision to this great play. With a cast that includes the legendary Peter Carroll alongside Mitchell Butel (Arms and the Man), Anita Hegh (Cloud Nine) and Ursula Yovich (The Golden Age), this promises to be a big, entertaining and thought-provoking night out.

“Brecht’s anti-fascist study of political power hits home.”
The Guardian
