Three plays following the adventures of Pa and Ma Ubu in their absurd world. King Ubu, the best known of the three, mirrors Macbeth as Ubu ousts the King, becomes a tyrant and is finally killed.

'Its lunatic grotesquerie is brilliantly caught in McLeish's new translation... Exhilaratingly combines the erudite with the lavatorial... classical parody and surreal farce anticipating avant-garde art as well as the Goons and Monty Python' The Guardian

This volume also includes Cuckold Ubu and Slave Ubu.
