Dario Fo's brilliantly funny, irreverent political farce embodies the modern Fo-brand of commedia theatre that has helped define him as a playwright of the people. The Nobel Prize Committee said of his work, "[he is a writer] who emulates the jesters of the Middle Ages in scourging authority and upholding the dignity of the downtrodden." Inspired by a
real-life event involving a man who "fell" from the window of a police station, Fo has invented an outrageously sly and caustic comedy filled with physical and linguistic acrobatics.

Run Time: 2 hours and 5 minutes including one 15-minute intermission
