Accidental Death Of An Anarchist (2014)

Jul 5th to 12th 2014

Written by Dario Fo translated by Simon Nye

Directed by Bill Butler

Dario Fo's controversial farce has been seen by over half a million people. It has been performed all over the world, and has become a classic. A sharp and hilarious satire on political corruption, it concerns the case of an anarchist railway worker who, in 1969, 'fell' to his death from a police headquarters window. Simon Nye's witty translation updates and relocates the play close to contemporary England. It premiered at the Donmar Warehouse, London, in 2003.
