Brisbane Festival and Metro Arts present

Mistero Buffo

Mistero Buffo

A devilishly funny masterpiece.

Australian Premiere

An extraordinary, virtuosic romp through a hundred characters and locations by one incredible performer. Our 21st century travelling storyteller, a Deliveroo driver at the centre of the gig economy, rushes from his last job of the day to deliver a subversive, gleeful rallying cry for the disillusioned and disenfranchised.

Award-winning theatre company, Rhum and Clay (UK), present Dario Fo’s devilishly funny masterpiece. A darkly comic look at the absurdities and inequalities of everyday life as seen through the eyes and tales of a travelling storyteller!

With culture wars driving division and a pandemic that has highlighted vast economic inequalities, can laughter (and a little righteous anger) help unite us?

Written by Dario Fo & Translated by Ed Emery
Rhum & Clay (UK)
