Roberto Zucco has escaped.
The city isn’t safe…

‘Killers never do look like killers. Killers go for quiet little strolls in the crowd just like you and me.’

Roberto Zucco is a psychological thriller that follows the absurd and sinister adventures of an escaped killer through an underworld teeming with gangsters, detectives, prostitutes, pimps and philosophers.

Koltès’ anti-hero Roberto takes us on a mythic journey that examines society’s relationship with violence.

Inspired by the true-life story of Italian serial killer, Koltès’ comic brutal masterpiece was his last play, written in 1989.
 


About Bernard-Marie Koltès

Bernard-Marie Koltès, one of France’s best-loved contemporary playwrights, was described by The Times as ‘a pioneer of a wholly new style of dramatic writing.’ Martin Crimp’s translation of Koltes’ last play crackles with energy and dark humour.
