RECOGNITION / AWARDS

Nobel Prize Winning Playwright

The Pope explains it all in this wild send up of Catholicism and politics by Italy's Nobel Prize winning farceur. In the Piazza San Pietro thousands of hungry children, the fruits of the his birth control doctrine, are crying for food. Meanwhile he contends with assassination attempts (an exploding canary), mafiosi, drug dealers, sinister bankers, and inept cardinals. He ends up in the street with a laundry basket on his head and a packet of heroin in his pocket, giving away condoms.
"Hugely enjoyable... Fo is hitting at the Achilles heel of Vatican politics: its immense wealth. His point is that it is easy for a rich church to rage against abortion when millions are born into poverty, and become victims of the drug trade, from which people under the Vatican's protection can fill their pockets." - London Sunday Times "Glorious political pantomime." - Guardian
