Honest Puck, Perform Australia's sister theatre company, and Limbo Theatre, are pleased to announce an upcoming co-production for an August season of the satirical classic, Accidental Death of An Anarchist, by Dario Fo.
The play is based on the 1969 incident in Milan, where a suspected anarchist - who is accused of terrorist attacks - falls to his death from a fourth-story window during a police interrogation.
Sounds serious, but in actual fact, the play promises to leave audiences in stitches, while questioning the integrity of authorities around the globe.
According to new theatre ensemble, Limbo Theatre Company, Accidental Death of An Anarchist is the perfect fit for their debut show.
“We pride ourselves on being seriously silly,” said Limbo ensemble member, Nick Steain.
“You’ll definitely get that in this show.”
Limbo Theatre Company was born from a group of Perform Australia graduates who were ready to take centre stage and create their own artistic opportunities.
“We’ve established Limbo Theatre Company to bridge the gap between our training and getting work in the industry,” Mr Steain said.
“Starting our own company has propelled us to upgrade our skill-set and think outside the ‘acting’ box.”
Honest Puck producer, and managing director of Perform Australia, Elizabeth Avery Scott, says it’s great to be supporting up-and-coming artists.
“We’ve been able to provide Limbo with rehearsal and performance space, as well as advice around starting a theatre co-op, so we’re thrilled to see them hit the boards,” she said.
The play is directed by Canberra-based actor/director Clare Moss.
