Accidental Death of an Anarchist

“A play as absurd and paranoid as the times in which we live”

8 - 10 & 15 - 17 November 2019

Blue Box, M Space - Msida

Masquerade re-opens the cold case of Guiseppe Pinelli with Accidental Death of an Anarchist, the explosive political farce by Nobel Prize-winning Italian playwright Dario Fo.

Maltese favourite, Pia Zammit, has delighted audiences recently in Comedy Knights and Stitching —now she returns in a criminally funny production about corruption.

Only one person can cut through massive bureaucratic duplicity and reveal what happened to the suspected anarchist who died from a fall out of a fourth-floor police station window. Did he jump? Or was he pushed? In this contemporary take on a beloved classic, Masquerade hauls you down to the station for a hilarious interrogation of our culture.

This madcap comedy opens on Friday 7 November and runs in the Blue Box on November 7, 8, 9, 14, 15 and 16.

Produced by Masquerade and featuring Pia Zammit, Antonella Axisa, Louiselle Vassallo, Maria Caruana, Gabriella Mendes and Samantha Gauci. Directed by Ian Moore
