Studied Accidental Death of an Anarchist when at school, so wanted to re-read it. Still left feeling I don't really Get It though - not enough history and political awareness _and_ a dislike of farce probably makes me the wrong audience. Started to read the Mistero Buffo, read the first two and thought I had the flavour, so drifted off and read something else. ( )

Fo is pretty amazing, witty, incisive. I particularly like Misterio Buffo. I have never seen it performed, though I have worked on it for monologues and done readings. ( )

Mistero Buffo, or The Comic Mysteries, is based on research into mediaeval mystery plays; The Accidental Death of an Anarchist concerns the "accidental" (or not) death of an anarchist railwork who "fell" (or was pushed) to his death from a police headquarters window in 1969; Trumpets and Raspberries is "A deeply subversive farce" (The Guardian) in which the boss of Italy's biggest car manufacturer FIAT, is mistaken for a left wing terrorist.
