Based on the true story of Italian rail worker and anarchist Giuseppe Pinelli, who died under mysterious circumstances while in police custody in 1969, Nobel Prize-winner Dario Fo’s Accidental Death of an Anarchist is one of the greatest—and most controversial—farces ever composed. In a world of commonplace deception and organized corruption, a “maniac” invades a police station interrogation room and hilariously manipulates the police into a truth-inducing hysteria. A hair’s-breadth combination of political exposé and pungent vaudeville, Anarchist is an explosive catharsis for our maddening times.
