Accidental Death of An Anarchist

​Chorley Little Theatre. 25/02/2019 - 02/03/2019 19:30

​​Written by Dario Fo Directed by Robert Walsh Considered a classic of 20th Century theatre, this sharp and hilarious satirical play about state corruption opens with a quick-witted fraudster, known only as The Maniac, being interviewed on the third floor of the police headquarters. Learning there may be plans for his “accidental” death, The Maniac assumes a number of guises to avoid and outwit his captors. Comic mayhem ensues as The Maniac runs rings around the police while making his defence to journalist Maria. A fast-paced comedy in which everyone is caught on the hop and nothing is quite as it seems.​
