Accidental Death of an Anarchist
In its first two years of production, Dario Fo's controversial farce, Accidental Death of an Anarchist, was seen by over half a million people. It has since been performed all over the world and is widely recognised as a classic of modern drama. A sharp and hilarious satire on political corruption, it concerns the case of an anarchist railway worker who, in 1969, 'fell' to his death from a police headquarters window.
This version of the play was premiered in London in 2003.
Commentary and notes by Joseph Farrell.

Loved this. Completely hilarious. Sometimes sharp and sometimes vulgar. Will make Lit in a translation for IB infinitely more engaging. Read full review

Very well done! Having both the elements of the farce and the absurdist play, this is a commentary on political corruption and is executed with great wit and thoughtfulness. My first of Fo, and I'm looking forward to reading more by the playwright. This is recommended! Read full review
