    Portrays the life and career of this Italian husband and wife duo of actors and playwrights, who are best known for their satirical and politically radical theater presentations. When Dario Fo received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1997, he shared the honor with his wife. Their work was censored for more than seventeen years in Italy and they were twice denied U.S. entry visas on political grounds. The video features performance excerpts from classic Dario Fo plays such as Mistero Buffo and Accidental Death of an Anarchist, plus interviews with Fo and Rame, and numerous theatrical colleagues and associates, both here and abroad, including Robert Brustein and Robert Orchard of the American Repertory Theatre.
