Accidental Death of an Anarchist

★★★★★ 'Glorious chaos. A remarkable performance from Daniel Rigby' WhatsOnStage

★★★★ 'Daniel Rigby is astonishing. A performance like this is a rare gem not to be missed' The Independent

An Anarchist has fallen to his death from a police station window. 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.

This classic farce by Dario Fo and Franca Rame storms the Theatre Royal Haymarket in a bang up to the minute version from award-winning writer Tom Basden and director Daniel Raggett.

Skewering everyone from the Metropolitan Police to the metropolitan elite, and with a tour de force central performance from BAFTA Award winner Daniel Rigby, this is a show that will leave the West End breathless.

  • Oh what a show!

    Superb production, grabbed you straight from the start and didn’t let you go until then end. Slap stick humour was hilarious and the power in the message was tremendous. A hard watch if you are and officer but real life political and controversial issues presented very well in a storyline which was fantastical but true. The energy and stamina of the actors was amazing! Loved it and left you with a set of emotions from sadness to hope.
