Accidental Death of an Anarchist

Author(s): Dario Fo, adapted by Tom Basden

Accidental Death of an Anarchist

A shape-shifting fraudster, known only as The Maniac, is brought into Police Headquarters as the officers inside prepare for a judicial review of the ‘accidental’ death of a suspect weeks earlier.

Deftly duping the police into revealing the truth, The Maniac exposes the corruption and idiocy at the heart of the system.

Dario Fo’s riotous 20th century classic is adapted by BAFTA-nominated comedy writer Tom Basden.
