The Pope's daughter by Dario Fo( Book )

18 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lucrezia Borgia is one of the most vilified figures in modern history. The daughter of a notorious pope, she was twice betrothed before the age of eleven and thrice married--one husband was forced to declare himself impotent and thereby unfit and another was murdered by Lucrezia's own brother, Cesar Borgia. She is cast in the role of murderess, temptress, incestuous lover, loose woman, femme fatale par excellence. But there is always more than one version of a story. Lucrezia Borgia is the only woman in history to serve as the head of the Catholic Church. She successfully administered several of the Renaissance Italy's most thriving cities, founded one of the world's first credit unions, and was a generous patron of the arts. She was mother to a prince and to a cardinal. She was a devoted wife to the Prince of Ferrara, and the lover of the poet Pietro Bembo. She was a child of the renaissance and in many ways the world's first modern woman."--Jacket flap

Johan Padan and the discovery of the Americas by Dario Fo( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Dario Fo is one of the world's most contemporary playwrights, forging subversive comedy, clowning, unusual linguistic experimentation, and brilliant playwrighting into a comedy of complete originality. A first-person monologue that bends and mutates language and historical fact, Johan Padan and the Discovery of the Americas is a retelling of Christopher Columbus's voyage to America. Told by a last-minute conscript assigned to clean the shipboard pig stalls, who goes on to be adopted by a tribe of Indians and help them fight conquistadors, it posits a riotous alternate history in which the dynamics between native and white, male and female, history and comedy are never what they seem."--Jacket

The Peasants bible ; and, The story of the tiger by Dario Fo( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""The Peasants' Bible" is a collection of five monologues drawn from Italian folklore but filtered through Fo's singular lens - for example, an Adam and Eve who are passionately entwined like peas in a pod; a race between two classes of men struggling for power that resembles the legend of the Hare and the Tortoise - to form a Bible of the common man. In "The Story of the Tiger," we find a Fourth Army soldier injured fighting Chiang Kai-shek's army, saved from starvation by being suckled by an enormous tiger, who then comes back to defeat Kai-shek by using model tigers in combat."--Jacket

Mistero Buffo by Dario Fo( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 153 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
