    To kick off their third season, and first as Austin’s donation-based public theatre, Palindrome is taking Nobel Laureate Dario Fo’s incendiary political black comedy to the streets. Featuring a new edit and updated political commentary by Palindrome’s Resident Playwright Nigel O’Hearn, this 20th century classic redefined contemporary Italian theatre when it appeared in 1970s Milan, taking aim at the real-life incident of a man killed during police interrogation.

    Banned from many theaters during its initial run, but seen by nearly half a million people in its first year alone in soccer stadiums, bars, and street alleys, Accidental Death of an Anarchist explores the fear mongering prevalent in a capitalist system that encourages mistrust and exacerbates fear between certain segments of the civilian population and the police force that serves it - Palindrome is using the commentary at work in the comedy to publicly discuss Austin’s own recent rash of lethal force slayings against our police force and by our police force in the name of public safety.

    This production is a partnership with Up Collective Gallery & The HOPE Campaign Farmer’s Market, were artwork inspired by the show and provided by Austin artists will adorn the walls of these venues for the entire month of performance.
