Dario Fo is one of the most representative figures of contemporary playwrights, with works having long been staged all over the world. His works discuss life with deep concern for the daily goings-on of common people. By presenting the universal issues in daily life, he criticizes social abuses, and protects the dignity of those abused, to further explore thought-provoking social issues. He has lots of representative works, such as The Accidental Death of an Anarchistis, He Had Two Pistols with White and Black Eyes, He Who Stelas a Foot is Lucky, Elizabeth: Almost by Chance a Woman, Comic Mystery etc.
