Nobel Prize winning playwright Dario Fo seamlessly combines social commentary and dark comedy as he examines the death of a protestor in police custody and the subsequent cover up by those in power.

In addition to creating new and original work, the Millibo Art Theatre reinvents a “classic” play each year with a twist. This November they are tackling the internationally recognized satire Accidental Death of an Anarchist by Nobel Prize winning playwright Dario Fo.

This sharp political farce seamlessly combines social commentary and explosive physical comedy. Based on a real life events, bureaucratic duplicity comes to light through the examination of the mysterious death of a protester in police custody from a fall out of a police window. Did he jump or was he pushed?! With absurdity and humor the abuse of power is questioned.

“….a heady blend of vaudeville and politics that suggests the Brothers Marx, Karl and Groucho have been working in unison.” – The Guardian

In a new format that mirrors, historically, Dario Fo’s creative process, artistic director Jim Jackson will be playing the infamous comedic lead “The Maniac” along with an ensemble of local comedic actors including, Hannah Rockey, Alex Williams, Erik Brevik, and Anna Faye Hunter.

Starting as a happy accident of solo singer-songwriters getting together for a one-time-only performance at a tiny guitar shop in Winnipeg, Manitoba, the Wailin’ Jennys have grown over the years into one of today's most beloved international folk acts. In 2004, the Wailin’ Jennys released their first full-length album "40 Days" in great critical acclaim, and in 2005 it won them a Juno Award (Canadian Grammy) for Roots & Traditional Album of the Year. Bolstered by their frequent appearances on Garrison Keillor’s public radio show "A Prairie Home Companion," the Jennys exploded onto the roots music scene, performing at packed venues across the Canada, the U.S., and throughout the world. Their next CD, "Firecracker," was a powerful follow-up to their debut album and found the Jennys stepping out of the folk realm and into the world of alt-country, pop, and rock. Garnering much attention, it was nominated for a Juno Award and won a 2007 Folk Alliance Award for “Contemporary Release of the Year.” The album charted for over 56 weeks on the Billboard charts and was followed up by their 2009 release "Live at Mauch Chunk Opera House," which also spent over a year on the Billboard bluegrass charts.

Nobel Prize winning playwright Dario Fo seamlessly combines social commentary and dark comedy as he examines the death of a protestor in police custody and the subsequent cover up by those in power.

In addition to creating new and original work, the Millibo Art Theatre reinvents a “classic” play each year with a twist. This November they are tackling the internationally recognized satire Accidental Death of an Anarchist by Nobel Prize winning playwright Dario Fo.

This sharp political farce seamlessly combines social commentary and explosive physical comedy. Based on a real life events, bureaucratic duplicity comes to light through the examination of the mysterious death of a protester in police custody from a fall out of a police window. Did he jump or was he pushed?! With absurdity and humor the abuse of power is questioned.

“….a heady blend of vaudeville and politics that suggests the Brothers Marx, Karl and Groucho have been working in unison.” – The Guardian

In a new format that mirrors, historically, Dario Fo’s creative process, artistic director Jim Jackson will be playing the infamous comedic lead “The Maniac” along with an ensemble of local comedic actors including, Hannah Rockey, Alex Williams, Erik Brevik, and Anna Faye Hunter.

Starting as a happy accident of solo singer-songwriters getting together for a one-time-only performance at a tiny guitar shop in Winnipeg, Manitoba, the Wailin’ Jennys have grown over the years into one of today's most beloved international folk acts. In 2004, the Wailin’ Jennys released their first full-length album "40 Days" in great critical acclaim, and in 2005 it won them a Juno Award (Canadian Grammy) for Roots & Traditional Album of the Year. Bolstered by their frequent appearances on Garrison Keillor’s public radio show "A Prairie Home Companion," the Jennys exploded onto the roots music scene, performing at packed venues across the Canada, the U.S., and throughout the world. Their next CD, "Firecracker," was a powerful follow-up to their debut album and found the Jennys stepping out of the folk realm and into the world of alt-country, pop, and rock. Garnering much attention, it was nominated for a Juno Award and won a 2007 Folk Alliance Award for “Contemporary Release of the Year.” The album charted for over 56 weeks on the Billboard charts and was followed up by their 2009 release "Live at Mauch Chunk Opera House," which also spent over a year on the Billboard bluegrass charts.
