After tackling the other two Ubu plays written by ALFRED JARRY in the mid 1890s, KBOO's Ubu Hour finally takes on UBU CUCKOLDED (Ubu Cocu). These absurdist radio dramas were a major inspiration to the Surrealists and Dadaists that followed, and even after more than 110 years, retain their sting. Ubu Cuckolded was adapted for radio theater by Rolf Semprebon from the trnaslation by Cyril Connelly. Performed by Per Fagereng, David Nochumson, Barbara Tilche, John Madden, Revolution X, Butoh, Polka Dot, Conch, Sweet Tooth, Rolf, Zach Newman and Noah Eaton. With original music by the MASTER MUSICIANS OF KAZOO-KA.
Radio theater adaptation of Fernando Arrabal's play THE TWO EXECUTIONERS. The work was translated by Barbara Wright, adapted for radio by Richard Francis, and directed and produced by Rolf Semprebon. Voices were performed by Barbara Tilche, John Madden, David Nockumson, and Rolf Semprebon.
