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.

This version of the play was premiered in London in 2003.
