About Mistero Buffo

One of the most controversial and popular spectacles in postwar European theatre, its broadcast caused the Vatican to denounce it as “the most blasphemous show in the history of television”. Now – after a smash-hit, sold-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe – Rhum and Clay bring their award-winning production to Arcola for two weeks only. Julian Spooner embodies over a hundred characters in a virtuoso performance, directed by Nicholas Pitt. Funny, tragic and always subversive, Fo’s rallying cry for the disenfranchised is reimagined and reinvigorated for our ‘gig’ economy and post-truth world.
