One Was Nude and One Wore Tails (A one act farce) by Dario Fo
The Cast: Colin Ford, Helen Reading, Benny Curtis, Steve Reading
Dario Fo’s farcical comedy centring on two road sweepers. Drawing on pantomimic 'Commedia-style' performance, the characters play around with ideas about philosophy, status, class and 'uniform'; the idea that 'You Are What You Wear' ("naked outside, but clothed within"). As in all Fo's work, serious ideas about society pigeon-holing its citizens are explored satirically, with great humour, knockabout slapstick and vaudeville-style song and dance. Fo doesn't preach or lecture, but instead uses clowns and buffoons to portray society's foolish pretensions. A hilarious comedy suitable for all ages.
