'A triumphant transformation of mediaeval mystery plays into radical political theatre. Mistero Buffo, or The Comic Mysteries, recreates the irreverent vitality of the popular mediaeval theatre. It is based on careful research into the work of the strolling players of Italy in the middle ages. Essential to an understanding of the well-springs of Fo''s remarkable genius, this is the first translation of the play into English. ''Fo is the determined enemy of pomp, ceremony and the material aspects of religion but what shines out of this exhilarating show is the love of humanity and truth.'' (Michael Billington, The Guardian)'
