Based on the true story of Italian rail worker and anarchist Giuseppe Pinelli, who died under mysterious circumstances while in police custody in 1969, Nobel Prize-winner Dario Fo’s Accidental Death of an Anarchist is one of the greatest—and most controversial—farces ever composed. In a world of commonplace deception and organized corruption, a “maniac” invades a police station interrogation room and hilariously manipulates the police into a truth-inducing hysteria. A hair’s-breadth combination of political exposé and pungent vaudeville, Anarchist is an explosive catharsis for our maddening times. Accidental Death of an Anarchist By Dario Fo Translated by Jon Laskin and Michael Aquilante Directed by Kristie Post Wallace (3rd-year MFA director/thesis production) APRIL 8 – 11, 2021
