Accidental Death of an Anarchist
1517 Central Ave NE
October 1, 2011 - October 23, 2011
When an anarchist accused of bombing a bank "accidentally" falls out 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. First produced by nimbus in 2006, this smash hit returns with Dave Gangler reprising the role of the Maniac. Hailed by critics as "cleverly directed" and "very funny," it will open the first full season in nimbus' new theater. Originally a commentary on the rampant police corruption in late 1960's Italy, Accidental Death of an Anarchist now serves as a hilarious but sobering look at how misguided those we trust to protect us can really be, and what lengths they will go to in order to control the story.
