We Won't Pay! We Won't Pay!
by Dario Fo, translated by Ron Jenkins
Directed by Doyle Ott
October 10-18, 2008 in the Evert B. Person Theatre
Nobel Prize-winning comic Dario Fo skewers corporate greed and government corruption in a strangely familiar 1970s Italy.
With food prices rising, rents going through the roof and power bills skyrocketing, what are working families to do? Take to the streets? No, just take the food! In this hysterical farce about people, prices, and Popes spinning out of control, the reaction of ordinary people to rising prices results in a side-splitting comedy of errors.
