About Accidental Death of an Anarchist

Did he fall? Or was he pushed? Only one man can cut through massive bureaucratic duplicity and reveal what happened to the suspected anarchist who died at the bottom of a fourth-floor police station window. In a world of commonplace deception and organized corruption, he stands as a bastion of honor and justice—he also happens to be a notorious liar, quick-change con artist, and certified maniac.

The duo behind Yale Rep’s uproarious The Servant of Two Masters and A Doctor in Spite of Himself—director Christopher Bayes and actor Steven Epp, playing the Maniac—return with a new production of Nobel Prize winning Italian playwright Dario Fo’s explosive political farce.
