Abstract:

"Mistero Buffo is Dario Fo's theatrical masterpiece. Borrowing from the tradition of passion plays and techniques of medieval storytellers, Fo creates a populist interpretation of biblical stories, infused with the rhythmic drive of a jazz improvisation, the immediacy of a newspaper headline and the epic scope of a historical novel. Part political slapstick, part theological circus, this "comic mystery play" has been performed by Fo and his wife and creative partner, Franca Rame, throughout the world to an estimated ten million people."--Jacket.
