Accidental Death of an Anarchist

Date: 8 Aug 2018

Written by Dario Fo in furious response to real life events surrounding the “accidental” death of a terrorist bomb suspect during a police interrogation in Milan in 1969, this stinging farce has become an absurdist classic.

In a first for this play, director Sarah Giles has amped up the energy with an all-female cast in a new adaptation, created by Giles with co-adaptor Francis Greenslade.

Caroline Brazier, Julie Forsyth, Bessie Holland, Annie Maynard, Amber McMahon and Susie Youssef feature.
