UBU Karaoke

Music Direction by Charles Hazlewood
Created & adapted by a company of performers, led by Mike Shepherd


A roof-raising stark-raving sing-along satire!

We all know an Ubu.

Impossibly greedy, unstoppably crude, inexorably hell-bent on making our country great again!

Sound familiar?

Inspired by Alfred Jarry’s riot-inducing masterpiece, Kneehigh will wind-up and let rip their own version of theatre’s most anarchic creation - KING UBU.

Expect world-class buffoonery from Kneehigh stalwarts in this deliriously unhinged improvised promenade musical (surely the first of its kind)! Featuring some of the most iconic rock & pop anthems of all time, given a fresh run for their money by a belting Kneehigh band plus an extraordinary choir of extras – you!* - we guarantee this will be a rocking, rollicking riot of ridiculousness you won't forget!

Ubu Karaoke is suitable for adults, teenagers and adventurous children over the age of 10.
Estimated running time: 90 minutes.

The Asylum is back in a new site at The Lost Gardens of Heligan and plans are afoot to create the ultimate night out! This year it’s all about breaking the rules with style, with pop-up shows, surprise acts and spontaneous events invigorating a season of world-class theatre and epic live music. The Asylum will run from 2 August until 22 September. Find out more on our Asylum page or book your tickets via Hall for Cornwall.
