The Theatre Program at Lorain County Community College has been busy preparing for their upcoming show, “Ubu Rex”. Written by Alfred Jarry, a French symbolist writer, “Ubu

Rex” is a nineteenth century political satire that deals with the ignorance of humanity and the viciousness of its oppressors.
