Directed by Daniel Raggett, the classic story of Accidental Death of an Anarchist by Dario Fo and Franca Rame has been adapated and updated by Tom Basden (Plebs)

Taking ruthless aim at the UK's police force when the Met's reputation is in tatters, Accidental Death of an Anarchist follows the events after an anarchist falls to his death from a police station window. But the question is: did he jump or was he thrown?

As the police attempt to avoid yet another scandal, a mysterious imposter is arrested and brought in for questioning. Seizing the chance to put on a show, he leads the officers in an ever more ridiculous reconstruction of their official account, hilariously exposing the cover-ups, corruption and profound idiocy at the heart of the police.

Don't miss this electric show when it transfers to the West End - tickets are on sale now!
