When a suspected anarchist insurgent dies after ?falling? from the fourth floor of a police station, the truth of the incident becomes shrouded in a massive bureaucratic conspiracy and cover-up.? But into this world of corruption enters a man who stands alone as a bastion of honour and justice… who also happens to be a notorious liar, conman and certified maniac.
This riotous comedy fused the spirit and energy of Italian Comedia Dell?Arte with the madcap farce of a Marx Brothers film to create one of the most acclaimed pieces of comic theatre of the twentieth century.
Based on true events in 1960s Italy, Nobel-prize winning Dario Fo?s original production became an instant classic, performing to over half a million people in just two years on the stage.? Simon Nye?s timely update mixes Fo?s biting satire and pinpoint social commentary with cutting, laugh-out-loud dialogue to create an outrageous, high-octane spectacle of sleaze, scapegoats, deception and disguises.
