Millionaire media boss Diana Forbes McKaye is kidnapped, but this ruthless magnate proves more resourceful than her clumsy abductors in this delight by the Nobel Prize winning Italian playwright, Dario Fo. Are things what they seem? Who is in charge? Who masterminded the abduction? Who has the television rights to this premiere media event? Into this cocktail of chaos and double-dealing, Fo adds a gun toting priest, a deranged altar boy, a kidnapper hiding in the fridge, pyromania and an explosive climax.
A Farcically Ruthless Media Circus
