Theatre company One Little Goat wades into Toronto politics with Ubu Mayor: A Harmful Bit of Fun, an adaptation of Alfred Jarry’s absurdist play Ubu Roi. One Little Goat’s version is inspired by “Toronto’s TwinFord mayors” (as labeled by Margaret Atwood), and features actors Astrid Van Wieren, Michael Dufays, and Richard Harte; a live jazz band; and bacon, which will apparently be cooked onstage. The “anti-musical” has also just been released in book form by local publisher BookThug.
