Theatre group probes Dario Fo's Accidental Death

Coventry Editorial 25th Jun, 2014 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016

WHAT are the true circumstances behind the mysterious death of an anarchist railway worker who falls from a police station window while in custody?

All will be revealed in the Criterion Theatre’s production of Dario Fo’s Accidental Death of an Anarchist – by far the most famous play by the 1997 Nobel Prize for Literature.

Based on true events, the play lives up to its description as a classic by remaining politically sharp.

Hugh Sorrill, David Butler, Frances Dixon, Riley Powell, Becky Fenlon, Chris Firth, and Anne-marie Greene star in what is also described as a rollercoaster of a comedy performed with bravado and slapstick from July 5 to 12 at the theatre on Berkeley Road South, Earlsdon.

Tickets are on sale priced £5 to £9.50 from the box office on 024 7667 5175 or online at www.criteriontheatre.co.uk.
