Accidental Death of an Anarchist: A Complete Play Guide for AS & A Level Drama

Dealing with radicalism in politics, and philosophical questions such as whether is ever ‘right’ to use violence to achieve political ends, Dario Fo’s most famous play is as relevant today as it ever was. A farcical take on a serious event provides a wealth of performance and design issues to explore.

What do teachers say about this resource? (8298)

I like the resource as a whole – especially as this play is new to my colleagues this year. It would support a teacher who was new to A level teaching, and ensure they felt confident to cover all aspects. I liked the explanations of social/historical/political context – these were well explained especially for students with limited understanding. I thought that the summary and scene analysis linked to true events was a great idea
