The NHB Drama Classics series presents the world's greatest plays in affordable, highly readable editions for students, actors and theatregoers. The hallmarks of the series are accessible introductions (focussing on the play's theatrical and historical background, together with an author biography, key dates and suggestions for further reading) and the complete text, uncluttered with footnotes. The translations, by leading experts in the field, are accurate and above all actable. The editions of English-language plays include a glossary of unusual words and phrases to aid understanding.

This Drama Classics edition of Ubu contains three plays following the adventures of Pa and Ma Ubu in their absurd world: King Ubu, Cuckold Ubu and Slave Ubu. It is translated and introduced by Kenneth McLeish, the most widely respected and prolific translator of drama in Britain.
