Il titolo di oggi fa parte della collana tutto il Teatro di Dario Fo, a cura di Franca Rame, pubblicato da Einaudi. Lo spettacolo viene rappresentato per la prima volta il 10 dicembre 1970, al mitico Capannone di Via Colletta a Milano. Spettacolo che infiamma le platee e l’opinione pubblica, già ben predisposte dallo specifico periodo storico/politico, riempe teatri e affolla i palazzi dello sport di tutta Italia, riuscendo faticosamente ad aggirare i continui tentativi di boicottaggio da parte dei poteri forti. Testo da buttare giù tutto di un fiato, tanto esilaranti quanto sconvolgenti, le novanta pagine con linguaggio scaltro e tagliente, raccontano una delle pagine più buie della nostra “Repubblica”. *Per chi non lo avesse ancora fatto, consiglio vivamente la visione dello spettacolo, ancor più pungente e “dinamitardo” del libro. http://theclash976.wordpress.com/ ( )

Uma sátira da corrupção política, centrada em um caso que ocorreu na Itália em 1969, mas universal. Pensei em Indagine su un cittadino al di sopra di ogni sospetto: o suspeito pede um advogado, e os policias respondem rindo: "Onde você pensa que está, na América?". E, é claro, na corrupção e brutalidade da polícia brasileira e das polícias de toda a América Latina. ( )

Accidental Death is a comical farce about a trickster who pretends to be investigating the death of an anarchist who was in police custody. As with many a trickster, he is the one to point out the absurdities and not only give the audience a laugh but also teach them a little something. The play is based on the story of a real person, but the events are made up. Read it. ( )
