"Dario Fo, whose works include Accidental Death of an Anarchist and Mistero Buffo, is probably the most frequently performed living playwright anywhere in the world. He is married to the actress and writer Franca Rame, with whom he has collaborated for many years. This biography is written with full access to both Dario and Franca, and examines the life and work of both in a unique relationship which draws its strength from the old Italian traditions of the harlequin and commedia dell'arte, and transforms them into uniquely powerful and popular instruments of contemporary political theatre."--Jacket." ;
