The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui: A Gangster Spectacle by Bertolt Brecht, translated By George Tabori

Bertolt Brecht’s 1941 literary shot-across-the-bow at the Nazi takeover, The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui recasts Hitler’s rise to 1930’s Chicago where a gangster methodically pulls the greengrocer trade into a stranglehold. Terror and bloodshed follow – can anyone stop Arturo Ui? Brecht’s skewering of Adolf Hitler and totalitarianism is given renewed significance in 2022 America, forcing us to look at what makes men like Ui so irresistible in the first place.
