An ambitious actor infiltrates the confines of a police station where earlier, a falsely arrested black motorist "fell" from the 4th story window and was found dead on the street. Using his bag of tricks and supremely transcendent (!) character work, he puts the police detectives through an interrogation they can't keep up with, revealing damning secrets being withheld by the force.
Updated and adapted by founding Conspirator Sid Feldman from the modern classic, Accidental Death of an Anarchist by Nobel Prize-winner Dario Fo, Accidental Death of a Black Motorist drops Fo's story smack in the middle of Chicago and one of America's worst abuses of power.
