Mistero Buffoby Dario Fo
Directed by John Szostek

March 31 – May 15, 2006

Mistero Buffo, Comic Mysteries presents the bawdy antics of the jongleur, a great buffoon who delighted crowds, infuriated the powerful, and scratched at the consciences of medieval Europe.

The audience meets head-on with this comic caravan of rich and poor, angels and drunkards, soldiers, peasants, cheats, popes and donkeys. His stories explode with love of humanity and rant against oppression...for the jongleur is a wise fool who suggests a dangerous gospel. Not for the politically weak of heart!

Here's what our critics say:

"[Director] John Szostek does a credible job balancing the smirking whimsy with devotional piety."

Scott C. Morgan, Windy City Times
