Inventory time in a pub, or rather poeub, somewhere in the world. Life is about to change for Mr Globul. He will go on to fight the inspectors, prompt a revolution, lead the country, lapse into a deep sleep, hide in a crowd of refugees, dress as a barrel and live as a travelling puppeteer... \nGlobul could be the heir apparent to Ubu and Gargantua. Poeub is a modern epic comedy where Serge Valetti plays with language, characters, clichés, time and space and leads us through an imaginary world as pitiless, brutal and absurd as our own.
