The Conspirators are a (new) theater & performance collective in Chicago dedicated to provoking thought and action through dynamic, immediate theater art.
Adapted from Dario Fo by Sid Feldman
Directed by Wm. Bullion
The Conspirators are back with another high-energy, high-style, hard-hitting satire, this time skewering the culture of police violence and the complicity of the Code of Silence. Updated and adapted by founding Conspirator Sid Feldman from Nobel Prize-winner Dario Fo’s modern classic, Accidental Death of an Anarchist, Accidental Death of a Black Motorist drops the story right smack in the middle of one of America’s worst abuses of power. A crazy, maniacal actor infiltrates police headquarters posing as the First Council to the Chief Justice and gets the bad cops to unwittingly confess the truth behind their suspect/victim’s “accidental” death. Accidental Death of a Black Motorist is directed by Artistic Director Wm. Bullion.
