Can’t Pay? Don’t Pay!

  • 2020, 2022

  • Translated by Cam Deaver

  • Written by Dario Fo

  • Directed by Bob Turton

Just announced: LA is LOVING Can't Pay? Don't Pay! at The Actors' Gang so much that we are extending it for 5 MORE WEEKS (11 performances)! You can now laugh with us until June 11th, LA!
Join us for our ‘’Extension Party’’ on April 30th after the performance!


Hungry and fed up by rising prices and stagnant wages, humble housewife, Antonia, joins a revolt of a few hundred women at the local supermarket. Determined to live with dignity and rejecting an austerity diet of dog food and birdseed, the women’s protest escalates and looting ensues. As police search door to door, Antonia and her friend Margherita frantically try to hide their ‘liberated’ goods from their husbands and the police. Can’t Pay? Don’t Pay! is a wildly funny satirical farce written by Nobel Laureate Dario Fo that questions why, in a world of bailed-out banks and overpriced prescription drugs, theft is only a crime when it is committed by those truly in need. 

Bob Turton, who won a Stage Raw Award for playing The Madman in last year’s production of Dario Fo’s Accidental Death of an Anarchist directs Can’t Pay? Don’t Pay!, continuing our obsession with Fo’s magic!
