Accidental Death of an Anarchist

Accidental Death of an Anarchist

By Dario Fo
Translated by Richard Nelson
Directed by Grady Weatherford
October 22 – November 21, 2004

“When the pace stays rapid fire, when the physical bits roll on top of each other, when the timing is damn near perfect, the show perculates like a runaway train going around curves. It’s smart, it’s funny, it uses the small space in a way that the audience can’t really hide. It’s got a knowing exuberance to it, like the fast-paced, probing chatter of Karl Miller as the nut case suffering from an inability to stop being an actor.”
-The Georgetowner

Terrorism. Police brutality. Political abuse of power. Big red noses. Nobel Prize laureate Dario Fo’s modern masterpiece of satire probes the mysterious death of an anarchist who falls from a window while being interrogated by officials. With dangerous wit and absurd physical comedy, Fo explores just what a democracy can justify during times of “terror.”
