“Fo emulates the jesters of the Middle Ages in scourging authority and upholding the dignity of the downtrodden.” – Nobel Prize Committee.

These fables to spark the imagination, challenge the conscience, and delight the soul. Greed and corruption are Fo's irreverent subjects for this satirical Fellini-esque provocation. Fo convenes courtiers, popes, cardinals, generals, peasants and one man who despite his own earthly appetites and desires becomes a saint. “Imagine” wrote The New York Times about Fo, “a cross between Bertolt Brecht and Lenny Bruce, and you may begin to have an idea of the scope of Fo's anarchic wit.”
