Daniel RigbyThe full cast of the upcoming West End transfer of ACCIDENTAL DEATH OF AN ANARCHIST has been confirmed.

  • Mark Hadfield as Inspector Burton
  • Ro Kumar as Agent Joseph

Directed by Daniel Raggett, this production's contemporary twist on a classic comedy received rave reviews and performed to sold-out audiences in both Sheffield and the Lyric Hammersmith earlier this year.

A sharp commentary on the incompetence and corruption of the police force, the story revolves around the consequences of an anarchist falling to his death from a police station window. As the police scramble to avoid another scandal, a mysterious imposter is brought in for questioning, and before anyone can stop him, he leads the officers in an absurd reconstruction of their official account, revealing the cover-ups and idiocy at the heart of the police.

Opening from 12 June at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, don't miss this strictly limited run as the production's final performance takes place on 9 September.
