“Scandals are the fertilizer of Western Democracy”
— Dario Fo, Accidental Death of an Anarchist
Anarchist, activist, provocateur and Milanese writer Dario Fo penned a timely satire about power and corruption when he wrote this play, Accidental Death of an Anarchist, about an anarchist railway worker who ‘falls’ to his death from a window police HQ in 1969. (A likely story, indeed). Recent works by the 79-year-old Nobel laureate include ‘Peace Mom’ a monologue about Iraq war protestor Cindy Sheehan, who lost her soldier son to the war.
