Accidental Death of An Anarchist, Chorley Little Theatre, Monday, February 25 to Saturday, March 2
CADOS are back with their first play of the 2019 season. Considered a classic of 20th century theatre, this sharp and hilarious satirical play about state corruption opens with a quick-witted fraudster being interviewed on the third floor of the police headquarters. Learning there may be plans for his “accidental” death, ‘The Maniac’ assumes a number of guises to avoid and outwit his captors. A fast-paced comedy in which everyone is caught on the hop and nothing is quite as it seems. Book at www.chorleylittletheatre.com. Tickets start at £8.
