Archives - Accidental Death of an Anarchist

by Dario Fo

Directed by Paul Mulrennan

Saturday 29th February – Saturday 7th March 1992 in the Auditorium

This is a sharp and hilarious satire on Police corruption in Italy.

Dario Fo’s play concerns the case of anarchist railway worker Giuseppe Pinelli who, it was claimed, ‘fell’ to his death from a Police Headquarters window in 1969. Pinelli was said to have jumped out — past seven Policemen. The window was wide open on a freezing mid-winter night. He sustained an injury to the nape of his neck — during his fall. The fall took place at 23.57 hours or 00.03 hours — depending on which bit of the Police testimony is taken. Fo’s resulting investigation into this matter is a wickedly funny farce played at a ferocious pace.
