Mistero Buffo by Dario Fo( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 155 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mistero Buffo is Dario Fo's theatrical masterpiece. Borrowing from the tradition of passion plays and techniques of medieval storytellers, Fo creates a populist interpretation 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. Part political slapstick, part theological circus, this "comic mystery play" has been performed by Fo and his wife and creative partner, Franca Rame, throughout the world to an estimated ten million people."--Jacket

L'amore e lo sghignazzo by Dario Fo( Book )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2011 in Italian and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eretici, giullari, provocatori e trasgressori, ma anche sante e angeli: sono i personaggi che popolano i racconti di Dario Fo, voci fuori del coro che compongono le vicende di una storia "alternativa". Eretica sarà dichiarata Mainfreda, della famiglia dei Visconti di Milano, colei che nel tredicesimo secolo raccolse l'eredità di una donna e di un angelo gigantesco, capaci da soli di difendere l'abbazia di Chiaravalle dal saccheggio furioso dei mercenari lanzichenecchi. Non eretica, ma pur sempre trasgressiva nel nome dell'amore, è Eloisa, quando ormai invecchiata racconta il suo incontro con il famoso Abelardo, la loro folle e irresponsabile passione, la terribile punizione che a lui toccherà in sorte. Trasgressori e provocatori furono senz'altro gli autori comici dell'antica Grecia, da Aristofane a Luciano di Samotracia. Ed è dunque sui loro testi, non su quelli della storia ufficiale che Fo cerca la verità della civiltà classica a cui altrimenti non si potrebbe accedere: parole di un teatro lontano, ma che parla di tirannia e di falsa democrazia, della loro mistificazione."--page [4] of cover
