Rhum and Clay bring to the stage Dario Fo’s seminal masterpiece, Mistero Buffo a daring and explosive rallying cry for the disenfranchised.
A travelling storyteller, another employee of the gig economy, rushes from his last delivery of the day to recount ancient tales of Jesus and his life… however these versions aren’t like any you’ve heard before. Darkly comic, sometimes tragic and always subversive, Mistero Buffo takes aim at those who manipulate truth and belief for power and control.
???? “Spooner tackles a huge cast of characters …with astonishing sharpness and clarity.”
????? “Magnificent production…with an astounding performance”
????? “A shapeshifting, body-popping, mesmerising performance”
????? “Julian Spooner is simply outstanding”
