Accidental Death of an Anarchist

Accidental Death of an Anarchist

English Comedy Club presents
ACCIDENTAL DEATH OF AN ANARCHIST
by Dario Fo, directed by Conrad Toft
18, 19, 20, 21 and 22 September at 8pm

The Studio, Rue Waelhem 69, Schaerbeek

Corrupt? The Italian justice system? Never!

Nobel Prize winner Dario Fo tells the story of an anarchist railway worker who “fell” to his death from a fourth fl oor window of the police headquarters in Milan. Fo’s maniacal protagonist wittily probes the police offi cers who conducted the anarchist’s interrogation, discovering everything but the truth about what actually happened on that fateful night…

The updated translation by Men Behaving Badly writer Simon Nye propels this hilarious satire on police corruption into the present-day. Don’t expect a quiet night at the theatre!

Tickets: €13 (€11 members/groups)

The Day after the Fair (Swan-ECC: 26-27 Oct 2007)

Anna, a servant girl who has been somewhat befriended by her mistress Edith, meets an attractive stranger, Charles, at the annual country town fair. A second meeting leads to not unexpected consequences. Charles, a budding barrister, returns to London. Anna, genuinely fond of the young man, cannot read or write sufficiently to correspond with Charles so persuades her mistress to write on her behalf. Through this correspondence Charles falls in love with Anna, whom he believes has written the letters, and Edith falls likewise. How will it all end? With sadness for someone! But whom?


Tickets €13 (€11 for groups and ECC members)
