Presented by Metro Arts and Brisbane Festival, Mistero Buffo is lead by a 21st century travelling storyteller: a Deliveroo driver at the centre of the gig economy, as he rushes from his last job of the day to deliver a rallying cry for the disillusioned and disenfranchised.

Award-winning UK theatre company Rhum and Clay present Dario Fo’s darkly comic masterpiece, translated by Ed Emery. Starring Rhum + Clay’s co-Artistic Director Julian Spooner, Mistero Buffo moves across a hundred characters and locations with just one performer, examining the absurdities and inequalities of everyday life through the eyes and tales of a travelling storyteller. With culture wars driving division and a pandemic that has highlighted vast economic inequalities, can laughter (and a little righteous anger) help unite us?
