Confetti Stage Announces Auditions for “The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui”


“The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui,” written by Bertolt Brecht in 1941, depicts the rise of a fictional 1930s gangster. Arturo Ui and his gang take over the Cauliflower Trust in Chicago by violently eliminating any and all opposition. “Murder or Protection” becomes the identifying catchphrase of this politically charged drama. The play parallels the rise to power of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party prior to World War II.  As the play draws to its final moment, we are left to ponder that even though Adolf Hitler was defeated, another will rise up and take his place.  How prophetic are these words.The Resistible Rise of Arturo UI is alive and living amongst us today!  This play is a true representation of Brecht’s “epic theatre,” presenting its story directly to the audience.
