Mistero Buffo

4 Feb 2018

Dario Fo's one-man masterpiece gets a timely re-staging in this physical tour de- force, packing in over a hundred characters and taking a hilarious and controversial view of the Bible's best known stories.

Mistero Buffo is a series of brief monologues with Biblical themes. The protagonist speaks against the religious establishment in a state of frenzy and ecstasy, seeking a vengeful redemption and recognition by the public. Controversial yet powerful, disturbing yet affirmative, tragic yet extremely comical, this play is meant to shock and unsettle the audience.

As topical and explosive as it was when Fo first performed it, this new restaging of Mistero Buffo is a daring and timely reminder that sometimes we need to pay attention to the smallest voice and not the most powerful.

Following the sold out successes of TESTOSTERONE, Hardboiled and 64 Squares, New Diorama Associate Ensemble Rhum and Clay return with this hilarious adaptation of a European classic. Performed by Julian Spooner and Directed by Nicholas Pitt.

Rhum and Clay Theatre Company were winners of best theatre show award at the Pleasance in Edinburgh 2017 & shortlisted for the Peter Brook Empty Space Award 2017
