Accidental Death of an Anarchist

StormCloud Arts & Theatre are proud to present Dario Fo’s dynamic, political satire ‘Accidental Death of an Anarchist’! StormCloud take Cumming & Supple’s adaptation, and set it smack-bang in today’s absurdist political reality.

Synopsis

During an interrogation in Police Headquarters in our own fair London, an anarchist ends up falling out of the fourth floor window to his death. Journalists all over the country are obsessed with the story - was it a suicide? A political statement? An escape gone wrong? An accident? The police announce that the guilty man committed suicide, but some people are not so sure…

Enter, the Madman; a quick witted, mischievous, rather unstable trickster with a panache for wreaking havoc and stealing people’s overcoats. Originally being interrogated for fraud, he begins an interrogation of his own, outwitting Constables and Inspectors, and charming journalists in his quest to prove what really happened to the anarchist.

Prepare for absurdity, blowing raspberries, throwing punches, singing policemen, and a look into the sordid state of affairs that is modern day Brexit Britain.
