Mistero Buffo is Dario Fo's one-man tour de force, in which he creates his own subversive version of Biblical stories. Infused with the rhythmic drive of a jazz improvisation, the immediacy of a newspaper headline, and the epic scope of a historical novel, Fo and his wife/collaborator Franca Rame have performed Mistero Buffo throughout the world to over 10 million people. One of the major theatrical artists of the twentieth century, Italy's Dario Fo was awarded the 1997 Nobel Prize in Literature. Ron Jenkins' translations of Dario Fo have been performed across the country. He is the theater department chair at Wesleyan University.

No Kidding! Clown as Protagonist in Twentieth-Century Theater examines the way clown was transformed into a serious character in twentieth-century theater. Modernist theater practitioners recognized that clown's approach to performance is profoundly different from other modes of theatrical representation. The paradox of clown, a traditionally marginal, comic character thrust into center stage as the focus of the agon, provided a stimulating new way to renovate tragedy. Experiments with clown by Jean Cocteau, Vsevolod Meyerhold, Bertolt Brecht, Samuel Beckett, Giorgio Strehler, Dario Fo, and Roberto Benigni are examined as a means of exploring how and why clown became, in contemporary theater and film, a character from whom audiences expect philosophizing, angst, or political criticism as much as physical comedy and fractured language.

Dario Fo "gives even the wildest gags a political flavor."—Guardian Can't Pay? Won't Pay!: "This is no gloomy agitprop. Fo-faced farce wears a broad smile and proceeds at breathtaking speed."—Financial Times Elizabeth: "Portrays our last Tudor monarch in Fo's characteristically rollicking vein ... A triumph for Gillian Hanna as a translator."—Financial Times The Open Couple and An Ordinary Day, written with Franca Rame, deal wittily with the fate of women in a society shaped by men.

Canzoni, Koks und Kakerlaken So dürfte ein Nicht-Italiener niemals über Italien reden: Es zöge einen Krieg nach sich. Das gefeierte Romandebüt des italienischen Tarantino ist zugleich eine Liebeserklärung an Neapel und eine schamlose, unverblümte und urkomische Abrechnung mit dem Italien Berlusconis. Der Schlagersänger Tony Pagoda ist der Archetyp des Italieners: sympathisches Großmaul, Womanizer und hemmungsloser Hedonist, dabei ein Quell ebenso simpler wie komplexer Lebensweisheiten, die er zu jeder Gelegenheit mit trockenem neapolitanischem Mutterwitz von sich gibt. Doch nach zwanzig rauschhaften Jahren des Erfolgs bricht er alle Brücken ab und zieht sich nach Brasilien zurück. Bis nach weiteren zwei Jahrzehnten fast mönchischen Daseins der Abgeordnete Fabio mit einem Helikopter auf seinem Dach landet, um ihn nach Italien zurückzuholen, weil Pagoda in der Silvesternacht für ihn singen soll. So landet der Star knisternder Langspielplatten im Italien der Millenniumswende, in dem sich – wieder einmal – alles geändert hat und doch alles gleich geblieben ist.

So let's laugh now, even at ourselves."-Franca Rame."Escaping domestic servitude to enjoy free love; the assault on body and spirit of a gang rape; the joys and vicissitudes of a day and a night on the razzle: in the skillful hands of Gillian Hanna, who also translates Franca Rame and Daria Fo's sparkling plays, this becomes the dramatic stuff of women's lives."-Ann McFerran, Time Out.Edited by Stuart Hood and translated by: Gillian Hanna, who performed a selection of pieces to great critical acclaim at the Half Moon Theatre, London in 1989; Ed Emery, political activist and translator of Fo's Mistero Buffo; and Christopher Cairns, Italianist and Reader in Italian Drama, at the University College of Wales in Aberystwyth.

The political work of Dario Fo and his wife/collaborator Franca Rame is charted from the 1960s up to the present to give the reader clear insight into this playwright/performer's unique literary and theatrical strengths. Each of Fo's plays and productions is discussed at length and the author has included an extensive and updated bibliography which includes full production details, quotes and writings about Fo.
