Archives - Accidental Death of an Anarchist
by Dario Fo
Directed by Laura Eddy
Friday 17th – Saturday 25th February 2017 in the Auditorium
The classic mash-up of zany comedy and political satire.
During his interrogation by the police, an anarchist mysteriously falls to his death from a fourth-storey window. The burning question is: did he fall, or was he pushed?
Accidental Death of an Anarchist is a mixture of biting political satire and clownish comedy. Dario Fo’s larger-than-life, darkly comic play lays bare the murky depths to which a corrupt police force (and establishment) will sink to conceal their own immoral activities. There is a whole load of business with a window, a bomb and a maniac, but who are the real baddies?
With its themes of establishment corruption, liberal-left self-righteousness, freedom of the press, and acts of terrorism, Accidental Death of an Anarchist poses a curiously apt 21st-century British conundrum, despite its origins in 1960s Italian social unrest.
