Progress Theatre in Redlands will be presenting a short run of "Accidental death of an Anarchist" between 20th - 25th February.
Inspired by the real-life events surrounding the death of an Italian railwayman and anarchist who fell - or was thrown - from the fourth floor of a Milan police station in 1969, Dario Fo's classic farce sees The Maniac outsmarting the dim-witted Inspector Bertozzo before impersonating a judge in order to evade capture - and command the re-enactment of the death of the titular anarchist.
Dario Fo was the recipient of the 1997 Nobel Prize for Literature.
I first saw a production of this play in London in 1980 where Gavin Richards delivered a tour-de-force in performance and production, so look forward to seeing how Progress Theatre deliver this pacy piece.
Bookings can be made here.
