ACCIDENTAL DEATH OF AN ANARCHIST

Call it subversive. Call it controversial. Definitely call it explosively funny.

Nobel Prize winning playwright Dario Fo’s political farce was seen by over a half million people in the first two years after its 1970 premiere, has since been performed in more than 40 countries, and is considered a classic of 20th century theater.

“ … hair’s-breadth combination of political exposé and pungent vaudeville …” —The Guardian
