I took BART, from which it is a short 4 min. walk. I'd leave a half hour before you think you have to if you've never been because you may end up on Eddy st at the Exit Theater admin office which you will ring a bell and a gentleman will then answer the door and instruct you to walk around the corner to Taylor St where the actual play is happening.travel • Feb 17 2014 star this tip starred

Funny! Ridiculous! but pointed. An intelligently directed and written script. Go early to give yourself the time to read the program first. This is always sound advice for any play but this one in particular to enjoy it's immense flavor of humor. The actors were the best and it seems like they really had fun! It's a political satire from the theater of the absurd. Small theater, every seat is good viewing.

The play was well acted. The set is a kitchen, which worked
at first but seemed too limiting after a while. (Being so absurd,
Ubu Roi doesn't really need a set at all.) I enjoyed some of what I saw, but didn't stay after the intermission.
