Doors open 7.15pm

Dario Fo’s classic farce sees a character known only as The Maniac hoodwink senior police in a series of increasingly bizarre impersonations. Absurdity escalates as the fast-talking con man uncovers the true story of a political suspect, who fell to his death on the street below. Despite this dark premise - it's based loosely on true events - there are plenty of laughs.
