In its first two years of production in Italy, Dario Fo's notorious "Accidental Death of an Anarchist" was seen by over half a million people. It has since been performed all over the world, and become a classic of twentieth-century drama. A sharp and hilarious satire on police corruption, it concerns the case of an anarchist railway worker who, in 1969, 'fell' to his death from a police headquarters window.

This edition has been adapted by Gavin Richards from Gillian Hanna's translation and features an introduction by Stuart Hood and a preface by Dario Fo. Dario Fo (b.1926) is a Nobel Prize winning Italian playwright.

"A marvellous concept: a zany political farce."--Michael Billington
