The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey continues the summer portion of its 49th season with Dario Fo’s wincingly funny Accidental Death of an Anarchist now through August 28 at The Theatre’s Main Stage – the intimate F.M. Kirby Shakespeare Theatre.  The F.M. Kirby Shakespeare Theatre is located at 36 Madison Avenue (at Lancaster Road), in Madison. 

Written by Italian playwright, actor, satirist and former politician Dario Fo, Accidental Death of an Anarchist is a hysterically sly and caustic slapstick farce inspired by a real-life event involving a man accused of a crime who “fell” from the window of a police station. 

Filled with physical and linguistic acrobatics, Accidental Death of an Anarchist embodies the modern Fo-brand of commedia theatre that has helped define him as a playwright of the people.

In awarding Fo the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1997, the Prize committee called him “a writer who emulates the jesters of the Middle Ages in scourging authority and upholding the dignity of the downtrodden.”  Today, Fo remains an active participant and campaigner on various political, social, and cultural issues in Milan. 

The translation from the original Italian script is by Ed Emery.  For tickets or for more information, call the box office at 973-408-5600 or visit www.ShakespeareNJ.org.
