THE MANIACAL farce Accidental Death of an Anarchist, by Dario Fo (below), sent shockwaves through Italian society in 1970 when it blew the gaff on the incompetence and corruption which led to the death of a suspected bomber in police custody. Pirate TC's revival of the Gillian Hanna version that made it into the West End - which upped the gag count - can't hope for the equivalent political clout, but the fast-paced silliness still packs a subversive punch.
