Saint Paul, MN (May 3, 2006) – When an anarchist accused of bombing a bank “accidentally” falls out of a fourth floor window, the police are quick to cover their tracks. But the arrival of a maniac in disguise and a shrewd reporter soon have the authorities scrambling to retract their amendments and amend their retractions. Directed by nimbus co-artistic director Liz Neerland, Accidental Death of an Anarchist closes nimbus's 2005-2006 season. In its first two years of production in Italy, Nobel Laureate Dario Fo's notorious farce was seen by over half a million people. At the time Fo's scathing satire was a commentary on the rampant police corruption in late 1960's Italy. Today it serves as a hilarious but sobering look at how misguided those we trust to protect us can really be. Accidental Death of an Anarchist will be presented June 2nd – June 18th at the Minneapolis Theater Garage, 711 West Franklin Avenue, in Minneapolis. June 2 – 8 pm June 3 – 8 pm June 4 – 3 pm June 8 – 8 pm June 9 – 8 pm June 10 – 8 pm June 11 – 3 pm June 12 – 8 pm June 15 – 8 pm June 16 – 8 pm June 17 – 8 pm June 18 – 3 pm Tickets are $10 on Thursdays, $12 all other days, and $16 for the opening night performance and gala. A special pay-what-you-can performance will be held on Monday, June 12th.
