NEW SHOW OPENING 10-25-19!

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.

Preview Thursday, October 24th and Opening, October 25th 8pm
Running Thursday-Saturday at 8pm until November 23rd

Location: The Athenaeum Theater (2936 N. Southport Ave.)

Directed by Wm. Bullion

“Here they come again, with Yankee Doodles: Let Treason Ring, which will continue to satirize in much the same manner. I will not be attending, for the simple reason that they told me not to at the end of The Deckchairs.”

“I’ve never seen a play so cogently argue for its own immediate closure. This is not
the backhand insult it likely appears to be!”
