Dario Fo's classic farce Accidental Death of an Anarchist was a sensation when it premiered in Italy in 1970.
Based on the story of a political activist who "fell" to his death from the window of a police station, the original production was seen by over half a million people. This incisive satire on police corruption, media manipulation and political shenanigans is here translated by Simon Nye.
This version of Accidental Death of an Anarchist premiered at the Donmar Warehouse, London in February 2003.
"A marvellous concept: a zany political farce. . ."

A popular and controversial playwright, actor and director, Dario Fo has earned international acclaim for his political satires and farces, and has led the field in political satire in Europe for over thirty years. His best known plays include Accidental Death of an Anarchist, We Won't Pay! We Won't Pay!, and Orgasmo Adulto Escapes from the Zoo. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1997 for "emulating the jesters of the Middle Ages in scourging authority and upholding the dignity of the downtrodden."Review:
“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
