Theatre Wallay, in collaboration with Heinrich-Boll Stiftung, performed its latest production – Arturo Ui Youn Qabiz Hua – Urdu version of The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui. The performances were held on 9th, 10th, and 11th November 2018 at the Farm – TW Studio. The play tells the story of a small-time gangster’s rise to power. Arturo Ui manipulates the broken, corrupt system of depression-hit USA to gain influence in Chicago.
Written by the legendary German playwright, Bertolt Brecht, this play is a parable for Hitler’s rise to power, and is a powerful insight into the machinations of power, ambition, corruption and propaganda.
The translation of the play was done jointly by the entire team of Theatre Wallay.
