We’re up to our necks in shit, but at least we have our heads held high!
The hilarious satire that turned a real life scandal into an infamouse piece of agit prop art. After the 1969 bombing of the Piazza Fontana building in Milan, police arrested a known anarchist in suspicion of this terrorist activity. During his interrogation, the anarchist fell to his death from a 4th story window. Dario Fo’s famous play picks up after these events when a character called The Maniac infiltrates the police station to catch these corrupt cops in a lie. Was the death “accidental” or was the poor lad defenestrated? Oracle’s production of ANARCHIST is complete with risky clown business, a few dance numbers, and a dash of audience inclusion.
