MISTERO BUFFO PDF

Dario Fo's one-man masterpiece gets a timely re-staging in this physical tour de- force, packing in over a hundred characters and taking a hilarious and controversial view of the Bible's best known stories. Mistero Buffo is a series of brief monologues with Biblical themes. The protagonist speaks against the religious establishment in a state of frenzy and ecstasy, seeking a vengeful redemption and recognition by the public. Controversial yet powerful, disturbing yet affirmative, tragic yet extremely comical, this play is meant to shock and unsettle the audience.

A blind man and a cripple are appealing for alms. Becoming aware of each other, the cripple mounts the blind man's back, so that they can both get about more easily.

They see Jesus being scourged and then forced to carry his cross. As the procession passes by, both beggars are cured. In a tavern Matazone the Fool is winning at cards, when a group of people sit down to dine in the next room: it is Christ with the 12 apostles. Death enters, a pale young woman, and the Fool's fellow players flee.

The Fool welcomes her and praises her beauty. She reveals that she has come for Christ, who knows of his fate. The fool concludes that Christ, who still loves those that will betray him, must be crazier than him. Jesus is nailed to the cross, and the Fool joins the Crucifiers gambling with dice and tarot.

When he wins, he offers to hand back all his gains if the Crucifiers will give him Jesus in exchange. He suggests that they replace Jesus with the corpse of Judas hanging from a nearby tree, and even offers to give them the 30 pieces of silver that the Fool found nearby. However, when the Fool goes to take Jesus from the cross, Jesus refuses, because he must die to redeem mankind.

The Fool warns him how his sacrifice will be exploited by the rich and powerful, but Jesus remains determined. The Fool once again concludes that the Son of Man is mad, and that he was sane only when he drove the moneychangers from the temple. These monologues and playlets, of which three are summarized above, serve to humanize the figure of Christ while propagating a socialist message regarded as too gentle by Fo's more militant comrades.
