Accidental Death of An Anarchist

Studio Theater, 721 Broadway, NY

Nov 3-5, 2022

In an absurdist adaptation of Dario Fo's stirring Anarchist play, the actors experiment with the mixing nature of theater and reality both within the play and in the process of rehearsing this play. A clown that hates authority was chosen to be an authority by the authority. A group of police that scorns the maniac was turned into maniacs by the maniac. Are you living for yourself or a strong yet hidden force you can never specify?

** Note: This production is performed in English. It was later produced into a production in Mandarin Chinese, had 5 runs at Theatre Row Studio Theatre, NYC. For detail, please see 一个无政府主义者的意外死亡.
