Accidental Death of an Anarchist
Accidental Death of an Anarchist (Morte accidentale di un anarchico) is a play by Dario Fo, recipient of the 1997 Nobel Prize in Literature. It is a classic of twentieth-century theatre, and has been performed across the world in more than 40 countries, including Argentina, Chile, England, India, Romania, South Africa and South Korea.
The play is a farce based on events involving a real person, Giuseppe Pinelli, who fell – or was thrown – from the fourth floor window of a Milan police station in 1969. He was accused of bombing a bank but then has been cleared of the charge.
