In its first two years of production, Dario Fo's controversial farce, was seen by over half a million people.  It has since been performed all over the world and is widely recognised as a classic of modern drama.

A sharp and hilarious satire on political corruption, it concern the case of an anarchist railway worker who, it was claimed, 'fell' to his death from a police headquarters window in 1969.

It is a stinging attack upon the black arts of government cover-up, manipulation and mendacity which can be watched safe in the knowledge that it happened a long way away and could never possibly happen here.
