The Conspirators are back with another high-energy, high-style, hard-hitting satire, this time skewering the culture of police violence and the complicity of the Code of Silence. Updated and adapted from Dario Fo's modern classic, Accidental Death of an Anarchist, Accidental Death of a Black Motorist drops the story right smack in the middle of one of America's worst abuses of power. A crazy, maniacal actor infiltrates police headquarters posing as the State's Attorney and gets the bad cops to unwittingly confess the truth behind their victim's "accidental" death. As hilarious as it is provocative!
