A bang up to the minute reworking of Dario Fo’s classic farce, by Tom Basden, takes aim at the ineptitude of the police force, ruthlessly exposing the corruption and incompetence of the institution…

An Anarchist has fallen to his death from a police station window. The question is: did he jump or was he thrown?

As the police attempt to avoid yet another scandal, a mysterious imposter is arrested and brought in for questioning.

Seizing the chance to put on a show, he leads the officers in an ever more ridiculous reconstruction of their official account, hilariously exposing the cover-ups, corruption and profound idiocy at the heart of the police.

A just for fun reading. Take part or listen in.
