Maladype Theatre of Hungary makes their American debut with an experimental take on Alfred Jarry’s satirical, grotesque classic, Ubu Roi.

In 1920, America was enthralled by the nature writings of a precocious six-year-old girl named Opal Whiteley. Nearly 100 years later, The Morningtime of Now captures her stories in puppetry and her poetry in song. A play for adults and children alike that transports the audience to Opal’s enchanting, pastoral world of The Blue Hills.
