Caesar Antichrist (César-Antéchrist) is an 1895 play by the French writer Alfred Jarry. The third act is an early version of Jarry's next play, Ubu Roi; the latter play's main character, Père Ubu, appears here as the Antichrist. The play begins with a startling sequence of images of garbled Christianity from which Pere Ubu emerges as the new Messiah.
