Wild Rice @ Funan

In a bustling metropolitan city, a man under interrogation has fallen to his death from the fourth-floor window of the police station. 

Did he jump? Or was he pushed? 

As the police do everything in their power to avoid a scandal, a mysterious trickster turns up and begins to conduct a madcap investigation of his own – one that threatens to expose the conspiracies and corruption that lie at the heart of the powers that be.

A timeless classic that is as uproariously funny as it is profoundly thought-provoking, Dario Fo and Franca Rame’s Accidental Death of an Activist storms the Wild Rice stage in this razor-sharp adaptation penned with irreverent wit by award-winning theatre-maker Jo Kukathas, who also co-directs with Glen Goei.

Starring a cast that includes Ghafir Akbar, Siti Khalijah Zainal, Lim Kay Siu and Munah Bagharib, Accidental Death of an Activist will leave you breathless with laughter even as it serves up a biting commentary on the abuse of power and the absurdity of authority.

Duration: approximately 2 hours 10 minutes (with no intermission)
Recommended for patrons aged 12 and above
