Accidental Death of an Anarchist

An Oldham Coliseum Theatre Production

Was it simply an accident, or something more…?

What are the true circumstances behind the mysterious death of a suspected anarchist who falls from a police station window whilst in custody?

A raucous rollercoaster of a comedy inspired by true events. The fast moving action takes place in an unnamed police station where an absurd re-enactment of events takes place to determine if the anarchist’s plummet to the street was accident or foul-play. This highly acclaimed classic is performed with bravado, ludicrousness and slapstick.

Accidental Death of an Anarchist is the most famous play by Dario Fo, recipient of the 1997 Nobel Prize in Literature. This piece of extraordinary writing is rarely performed on stage and is a masterpiece in comic absurdity.
