They Don't Pay, We Won't Pay
By Dario Fo
A new adaptation by Deborah McAndrew
Based on a translation by Jon Laskin and Michael Aquilante
Anthea is a woman on the edge, out of work, and in arrears. When she gets mixed up in a riot at the local supermarket, she seizes the opportunity to stock her
empty cupboards and those of her friend, Maggie.
But how will they hide the loot from their law-abiding husbands?
What will they tell the police?
When the going gets tough Anthea’s anarchic imagination takes over, with a fantastical, farcical answer for everything…
