WINNER of The Stage Edinburgh Award 2018.
Julian Spooner embodies over a hundred characters in a virtuoso performance, directed by Nicholas Pitt. Funny, tragic and always subversive, Fo's rallying cry for the disenfranchised is reimagined and reinvigorated for our 'gig' economy and post-truth world.
Nobel prize-winner Dario Fo spent thirty years perfecting Mistero Buffo, reworking well-known Biblical stories to skewer the rich and powerful.
One of the most controversial and popular spectacles in postwar European theatre, its broadcast caused the Vatican to denounce it as "the most blasphemous show in the history of television".
Now - after a smash-hit, sold-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe - Rhum and Clay bring their award-winning production to Arcola for two weeks only.
