About this show

Mistero Buffo, Comic Mysteries, by Dario Fo, is a masterpiece of physical comedy theatre. It presents the bawdy antics of the jongleur, a great buffoon who delighted crowds, infuriated the powerful, and scratched at the consciences of medieval Europe. The audience meets headon with his comic caravan of rich and poor, angels and drunkards, soldiers, cheats, popes and donkeys. His stories explode with love of humanity and rant against oppression...for the jongleur is a wise fool who suggests a dangerous gospel.
