Urinetown is a hilarious and resonating tale of greed, corruption, love, and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold.

Urinetown, a social and political satire set in a fictional future where a terrible 20-year drought has crippled the city’s water supplies. Water is so scarce that the government enforces a ban on all private toilets in an effort to control water consumption. Citizens who try to circumvent the peeing-fee by relieving themselves in the bushes, risk being taken away to “Urinetown”, a mysterious place where many have been sent but no one ever returns…

Music and Lyrics by Mark Hollmann
Book and Lyrics by Greg Kotis

“A declaration of the power of theatre!” (The New York Times, 2001)

“The show’s glorious message is: Hey, it’s only theatre, but isn’t it wonderful? And did I mention it’s hilarious? Simply the most galvanizing theatre experience in town.”

URINETOWN was produced on Broadway in September, 2001 by the Araca Group and Dodger Theatricals in association with TheaterDreams, Inc., and Lauren Mitchell All

A pioneering theatre with a unique Northern Voice, locally rooted, global in outlook, inspiring artists, audiences and communities to reach their greatest potential. We produce and present inspiring theatre that reflects the diversity of a modern Britain. We provide the resources, space and support to grow people and ideas, are an ambassador for our city, a flagship for our region and a welcoming home for our communities. Through our work with schools and local communities we engage with thousands of young people, disabled groups and adults, offering opportunities to participate in the arts, whether as the first step into a career, a way to build confidence and meet new people, or as part of a rounded education. During our Year of Exceptional Drama as part of Hull UK City of Culture 2017 we welcomed a record number of 108,000 audience members at our home in Hull and on tour around the UK. We were thrilled to work with a wide range of internationally renowned artists and companies to stage 13 home-produced plays, including 7 new commissions. We have announced our ambitious equality and diversity plans as part of our commitment to opening up access to all aspects of the theatre. The animation below details how and why we will be ensuring our doors are well and truly flung open to all. It was developed by the theatre’s Inclusion Action Group.
