ACCIDENTAL DEATH OF AN ANARCHIST
The first play of the 2019 Season.
Written by Dario Fo
Directed by Robert Walsh
Considered a classic of 20th Century theatre, this sharp and hilarious satirical play about state corruption opens with a quick-witted fraudster, known only as The Maniac, being interviewed on the third floor of the police headquarters. Learning there may be plans for his “accidental” death, The Maniac assumes a number of guises to avoid and outwit his captors.
Comic mayhem ensues as The Maniac runs rings around the police while making his defence to journalist Maria.
A fast-paced comedy in which everyone is caught on the hop and nothing is quite as it seems.
“A zany political farce” - The Guardian
Widely acclaimed as a brilliantly wicked comedy and a biting satire on police corruption.
