Mistero Buffo

"Dario Fo's seminal masterpiece, MISTERO BUFFO – a daring and explosive rallying cry for the disenfranchised.

 

A travelling storyteller, another employee of the gig economy, rushes from his last delivery of the day to recount ancient tales of Jesus and his life... however these versions aren't like any you've heard before. Darkly comic, sometimes tragic and always subversive, MISTERO BUFFO takes aim at those who manipulate truth and belief for power and control."

I directed and adapted this "outstanding production" (The Stage) starring long time collaborator Julian Spooner for Rhum and Clay. It won The Stage Award for Outstanding Performance in 2018 and received numerous rave reviews and has toured extensively.
