Rob Ford and the Mysterious Case of the Flying Anarchist (2011)
Rob Ford and the Mysterious Case of the Flying Anarchist
a play by Matt Jones
based on Accidental Death of an Anarchist by Dario Fo
Summer 2011: Toronto, Montreal
The next time the G20 comes to town, Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is ready, PM Stephen Harper is ready, Police Chief Bill Blair is ready. So when a bomb goes off downtown, scores of protesters are rounded up right away. Everything is going smoothly until an anarchist organizer falls to his death from a window during interrogation. Police reports say it’s an accident. And that it’s a suicide. A lone maniac tries to discover the truth. What was the Mayor doing at the police station that night? Based on Dario Fo’s classic 1970 clown show, Accidental Death of an Anarchist, Matt Jones’s adaptation is a pre-emptive attack on Toronto’s new political landscape.
directed by Caroline Fournier; produced by Matt Jones and Andrea Joy Rideout
