Tonight on UBU HOUR: An audio drama that poses the question: Is a picture worth a thousand words? In a dystopic future where the power grid has failed and civilization begins to crumble, this question is examined in a hyper-violent and mysterious tale of murder and seduction and revenge, where sometimes the picture is not what it seems, and where words become lies.
Tune in at your own peril to: A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS...
