Chichester's RESISTIBLE RISE OF ARTURO UI to Close 7 Dec

Chichester Festival Theatre's celebrated production of Bertolt Brecht's epic savagely funny parable of the rise of Hitler, with a cast that includes Henry Goodman, Keith Baxter, Michael Feast, William Gaunt and Joe McGann, will end its scheduled run at the Duchess Theatre on Saturday 7 December.

Chicago in the 1930s, the Great Depression - a time of unemployment, fear and corruption and the perfect time for a small-fry crime boss and his henchmen to make it big, to seize a greater power, an absolute power. Arturo Ui and his mob of gangsters run protection rackets for both workers and businesses. Soon Ui's menacing shadow looms large, from the markets, to the docks and across the city itself.

Other cast include Mark Carlisle, Alex Giannini, Amanda Gordon, Charlie Hamblett, Lucas Hare, Hugh John, Richard Mark, Lizzy McInnerny, Peter Moreton, Steve Simmonds, Colin Stinton, David Sturzaker and Benny Young.

The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui is produced in the West End by Chichester Festival Theatre, Duncan C Weldon, Nica Burns, Liza McLean, Charles Diamond and Max Weitzenhoffer.

Ticket prices £12 - £47.50. (Premium seats available). FRONT ROW ALL AT £12 BOOKABLE IN ADVANCE. To order, call the Box Office 0844 412 4659 or visit
