A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words

Tonight on UBU HOUR: An audio drama that poses the question: Is a picture worth a thousand words? In a dystopic future where the power grid has failed and civilization begins to crumble, this question is examined in a hyper-violent and mysterious tale of murder and seduction and revenge, where sometimes the picture is not what it seems, and where words become lies.
