Winner of three Tony Awards, including Best Book, Greg Kotis and Mark Hollmann’s Urinetown: The Musical is a tale of greed, corruption, love, and revolution in a time when water is worth its weight in gold. After a twenty-year drought made water a scarce commodity, private toilets became outlawed. Now, all restroom necessaries are controlled by the Urine Good Company (UGC), a megacorporation that charges fees for using public toilets. Anyone unable to pay fees–or who dares to relieve themselves outside the commode–are arrested and banished to “Urinetown”. When UGC employee Bobby Strong’s father falls victim to this tyranny, he spearheads a revolution, inspiring the people to rise up and reclaim their own restroom duties–unaware of the realities and consequences of his actions… With a preface by David Auburn, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright of Proof And an introduction by the authors
