Fo Plays: 1 by Dario Fo

Fo Plays: 1 contains some of the playwright's best work, including: Mistero Buffo, a work based on research into medieval mystery plays; Accidental Death of an Anarchist, which 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; and Trumpets and Raspberries, a play in which the boss of Italy's biggest car manufacturer, FIAT, is mistaken for a left-wing terrorist.

The volume also contains two of Fo's previously unpublished short farces: The Virtuous Burglar and One was Nude and One Wore Tails.
