Hilarious, Great acting, Funny, Entertaining, Absorbing

Don't see it if the subject of violence/crime/cover-ups perpetrated by police is going to prevent you from enjoying the show. Read more

Masterful, High energy, Hilarious, Entertaining, Clever

See it if Updated, clever and relevant, less typical farce with a tour de force central performance by Daniel Rigby as the Maniac.

Don't see it if You don’t like physical comedy - it’s quite like One Man, Two Guv’nors. You need to focus on what’s being said.

“If London right now is a pressure cooker full of red-hot political anger, then ‘Accidental Death of an Anarchist’ is an all-singing, all-pratfalling safety vent. Go to laugh and to rage, just as its author intended.”

All That Dazzles (UK)

“ ‘Accidental Death of an Anarchist’ might have been written over five decades ago, but if creative people keep breathing new life into it like in this production, and we keep failing to learn from our mistakes, it might have another five decades to go yet. A must watch.”

“Daniel Rigby’s Maniac cleverly corners corrupt coppers with panache, happily winking at the audience and breaking the fourth wall with gleeful abandon. The audience is in on the joke – we’re one step ahead of the police, and seeing what is going to happen next is deliciously poetic”
