Mistero Buffo by Dario Fo
Book DescriptionA triumphant transformation of mediaeval mystery plays into radical political theatre Mistero Buffo, or The Comic Mysteries, recreates the irreverent vitality of the popular mediaeval theatre. It is based on careful research into the work of the strolling players of Italy in the middle ages. Essential to an understanding of the well-springs of Fo's remarkable genius, this is the first translation of the play into English."Fo is the determined enemy of pomp, ceremony and the material aspects of religion but what shines out of this exhilarating show is the love of humanity and truth." (Michael Billington, The Guardian)

My First Seven Years (plus a few more), Paperback (March 2006)
"My First Seven Years (plus a few more)" is Dario Fo's memoir of his formative years. Born in 1926 and growing up between the wars, Fo witnessed the struggles between Fascists and Partisans in the mountainous north. He fills his work with anecdotes, characters and sketches that were his inspiration.
Accidental Death of an Anarchist, Paperback (October 2003)
Highly contentious and subversive at the time of its first production in Milan in 1970, this has since become one of Fo's best known and translated text. Based on a true story it throws in to relief the judicial and police corruption of 1970s Italy. Simon Nyes's superb translation brings out the parallels with our situation today.
