Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“I ought to warn you that the author of this sick little play, Dario Fo, has the traditional, irrational hatred of the police common to all narrowminded left-wingers and so I shall, no doubt, be the unwilling butt of endless anti-authoritarian jibes.” —Inspector Bertozzo, Central Italian Police HQ

“A marvellous concept: a zany political farce.” —Michael Billington
