"We Won't Pay! We Won't Pay!" by Dario Fo
Presented by The Wilbury Group
August 18 - August 28, 2011
The Wilbury Group is proud to present Nobel Prize winning playwright Dario Fo’s hilarious political comedy We Won’t Pay! We Won’t Pay! August 18-28 2011 in Olneyville’s historic Versailles Building. Translated by Ron Jenkins, this farcical comedy based on true events in a 1970’s village in Italy uses the circumstance of a housewives’ revolt against out of control inflation to explore the issues of social hypocrisy, injustice, and liberation, with a healthy dose of hysterics thrown in for good measure.
Directed by critically acclaimed Providence theatre artist Brien Lang, and featuring performances by veteran Providence actors Clare Blackmer, Bobby Casey, Kevin Delaney, Kelly Seigh, and Dave Rabinow, and performed in Olneyville’s historic Versailles Building, this production of We Won’t Pay! We Won’t Pay! promises to be the theatrical event of the summer.
