Accidental Death of An Anarchist
directed by Janet Bobcean
Written in 1970, Morte accidentale di un'anarchico is Dario Fo's best know and most popular play. A sharp and hilarious satire on police corruption, and based on a real case, Fo tells the story of the anarchist railway worker who, 'fell" to his death from a police headquarters window. It is a piece in which his skill at writing farce and his gift as a clown brilliantly serve his politics, playing on the tensions between the death of the prisoner and the farcical interventions of the authorities to explain it.
