Urinetown is a political satire set in a not-so-distant future where a 20-year drought has crippled the city’s water supplies, leading to a ban on private toilets in an effort to control water consumption.
Citizens must use the public, pay-per-use amenities owned and operated by Urine Good Company – a private malevolent corporation run by the corrupt Caldwell B Cladwell. Citizens who try to relieve themselves in the bushes risk being taken away to “Urinetown”, a mysterious place where many have been sent, but no one ever returns.
The oppressed masses queue at the filthiest urinal in town, Public Amenity #9. With fee increases in the pipeline, the poor rise up under the leadership of dashing rebel Bobby Strong to fight the tyrannical regime for the right to make toilets free for all to use.
URINETOWN is a hilarious tale of greed, corruption, love, and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold.
