MISTERO BUFFO

REF NR: 6946

Rhum and Clay

MISTERO BUFFO

One of our favourite shows to ever be performed at the Ventnor Exchange returns following a sell out Edinburgh Fringe run and London transfer, culminating in winning the prestigious Stage Edinburgh Award

Nobel prize-winner Dario Fo spent thirty years perfecting Mistero Buffo, reworking well-known Biblical stories to skewer the rich and powerful.

One of the most controversial and popular spectacles in postwar European theatre, its broadcast caused the Vatican to denounce it as “the most blasphemous show in the history of television”.

Now – after a smash-hit, sold-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe – Rhum and Clay bring their award-winning production to Ventnor Exchange for two nights only.

Julian Spooner embodies over a hundred characters in a virtuoso performance, directed by Nicholas Pitt. Funny, tragic and always subversive, Fo’s rallying cry for the disenfranchised is reimagined and reinvigorated for our ‘gig’ economy and post-truth world.

★★★★★ “This is, in short, a tour de force … a shapeshifting, body-popping, mesmerising performance; drilled to perfection” – WhatsOnStage

“★★★★★ Magnificent … an astounding performance”

—The Stage

“★★★★ An enthralling restaging of a Dario Fo classic”

—The Guardian

The performance is 60 mins with no interval.
