Accidental Death of an Anarchist

By Dario Fo

This hilarious farce is based on a true incident that occurred in Italy in 1969 when an anarchist railway worker “accidentally” fell to his death from a police headquarters’ window. The play’s timeless irreverence about political corruption makes it a hit whenever it is performed. Dario Fo has written over 70 plays and was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1997.
