Accidental Death of Anarchistby Dario Fo
Synopses & Reviews
"I ought to warn you that the author of this sick little play, Dario Fo, has the traditional, irrational hatred of the police common to all narrowminded left-wingers and so I shall, no doubt, be the unwilling butt of endless anti-authoritarian jibes"—Inspector Bertozzo, Central Italian Police HQ
In its first two years of production, Fo's notorious Accidental Death of an Anarchist was seen by over half a million people. It has since been performed all over the world and become a classic. A sharp and hilarious satire on police corruption, it concerns the case of an anarchist railway worker who, in 1969, "fell" to his death from a police headquarters window.
"A marvelous concept: a zany political farce..."—Michael Billington, Guardian
"Fo's play absorbs social indignation into mainstream Italian comedy"—Irving Wardle, The Times
