"In the current production of artistic director Rob Melrose’s succinct, fluid new translation of Jarry’s text, the play’s imaginative director Yury Urnov (Russian-born and -trained) opens with Ubu screaming “S---!” and racing backstage to the bathroom. Disconcertingly literal sound effects follow."
