Written in 1970 in response to the death in custody of an Italian anarchist, Fo’s version of the attempts by the police to cover up the death of Giuseppe Pinelli exposes the corruption at the heart of Italian politics at the time.
Will Jarvis played the despicable Bertozzo, a humourless police officer constantly at the butt of everyone's jokes.
Accidental Death of an Anarchist was reviewed by Eleanor Lewis on May 4th.
" The whole thing was fast-paced, well-disciplined, well directed and showed off a comprehensive understanding of every element of the material being presented – including the highly entertaining and suitably anarchic programme."
