Accidental Death of an Anarchist

2007-2008 Season: April 24 - May 4

By Dario Fo
Directed by Steve Snyder

Dario Fo’s mischievous yet haunting satire of bureaucratic conspiracy, totalitarianism and cover-up where a notorious liar, conman and certified maniac stands alone as a bastion of honor and justice.  Fusing the spirit and energy of Italian Comedia Dell’Arte with the madcap farce of a Marx Brothers film, this riotous comedy is brilliant, witty, bitingly acerbic, acutely political, and one of the most acclaimed pieces of comic theatre of the twentieth century – a production capable of bringing down the house…and who knows, maybe even the state.
