Synopsis : Internationally popular, Accidental Death of an Anarchist is based on a 1969 incident and written by Dario fo in which an anarchist railway worker, arrested in connection with a terrorist bombing in Milan, fell to his death from a fourth-story window at police headquarters during the course of an interrogation. His death was officially declared a suicide. Fo created one of his most successful roles for this play, that of a maniac. Called “a grotesque farce” by its author, the play’s dramatic action takes the form of a mock investigation carried out by a make-believe judicial examiner. A madman impostor (the Maniac).
