Being Mussolini

Aldo is a very ordinary man, save for one thing - he looks and sounds exactly like Benito Mussolini.

Being Mussolini's lookalike is no easy matter, especially when Italy is at war and your wife prefers your new identity.

A frantic mix of the surreal and the comic combine in Boothby Graffoe's new play.
