A huge international hit, Dario Fo's Accidental Death of an Anarchist is a sharp and hilarious satire on police corruption in Italy

In its first two years of production in Italy, Dario Fo's notorious Accidental Death of an Anarchist was seen by over half a million people. It has since been performed all over the world, and become a classic of twentieth-century drama

A sharp and hilarious satire on police corruption, it concerns the case of an anarchist railway worker who, in 1969, 'fell' to his death from a police headquarters window

"I ought to warn you that the author of this sick little play, Dario Fo, has the traditional, irrational hatred of the police common to all narrowminded left-wingers and so I shall, no doubt, be the unwilling butt of endless anti-authoritarian jibes" ~ Inspector Bertozzo, Central Italian Police HQ

"A marvellous concept: a zany political farce" ~ Michael Billington
