Accidental Death of an Anarchist

Following a critically acclaimed, sell-out run at the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre, Accidental Death of an Anarchist transfers to the West End for a strictly limited run at the Theatre Royal Haymarket from 12 June.


An Anarchist has fallen to his death from a police station window. But did he jump or was he thrown? As the police prepare for an inquiry into the incident, an unhinged showman known only as the Maniac is arrested and brought into the station. Seizing the opportunity to put on a show, he leads the police in an absurd recreation of their version of events, exposing the cover-ups, corruption and profound idiocy of an institution in free-fall.


A razor-sharp satire, Tom Basden’s wickedly hilarious adaptation relocates Dario Fo’s classic farce to contemporary London and features a show-stopping performance from BAFTA Award winner Daniel Rigby, as the Maniac.


Eviscerating 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.


Haymarket. SW1Y 4HT.
