Watch: “I’ve never had so many lines to learn in my life!”

For this week’s episode of Newsbook.com.mt‘s online cultural programme ‘Take a Bow‘, Coryse Borg interviews actress Pia Zammit who is starring in Masquerade Malta’s production of Dario Fo’s criminally comical play Accidental Death of an Anarchist.

Penned by the Nobel Prize-winning Italian playwright in 1970, Accidental Death of an Anarchist tells the story of the investigation into the death of a suspected anarchist following a fall from a fourth-floor police station window. 

This classic farce – which has a political sting in its tail – will now be given renewed energy in the Masquerade production, with an all-female cast that is led by some of the country’s funniest comediennes. Apart from Zammit, the production will feature Antonella Axisa, Louiselle Vassallo, Maria Caruana, Gabriella Mendes and Samantha Gauci. 

Masquerade’s production of Accidental Death of an Anarchist by Dario Fo will be staged at Blue Box – M Space, Oscar Zammit Street, Msida, on the 7th, 8th, 9th, 14th, 15th, and 16th November 2019, with all performances starting at 8.00 pm.
