Edgy, Funny, Absorbing, Thought-provoking, Entertaining

See it if You like watching the Network meets Airplane. Fourth wall breaking, farce and zingers, it has it all! Daniel Rigby should win an Olivier!

Hilarious, Great acting, Funny, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if you are a fan of physical comedy, don't mind a bit of panto, want to see some terrific acting, and don't mind the subject of police lies.

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

Must see, Funny, Entertaining, Clever

See it if As a police officer I found the references to our current situation really funny and sensitively done whilst making an important point.

Don't see it if You get easily offended or a sensitive as some topics could be triggering.

Intelligent, Great writing, Great acting, Entertaining, Clever

See it if You enjoy a fast paced plot. The dark humor script does not fail to make you reflect on some very modern problems. Superb acting.

Don't see it if You don't like dark humor.

Time Out London
March 22nd, 2023

“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.”

“ ‘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”
