Oh, And By The Way--

This is what the University of Minnesota's website says about "The Pope And The Witch."

Written by Dario Fo
Directed by Robert Rosen
March 1–9, 2007

A wild send-up of Catholicism and politics by Italy’s Nobel Prize-winning farceur. In the Piazza San Pietro thousands of hungry children, the fruits of the Pope’s birth control doctrine, are crying for food. Meanwhile he contends with assassination attempts, Mafiosi, drug dealers, sinister bankers, and inept cardinals. Fo’s point is that it is easy for a rich church to rage against abortion when millions are born into poverty, and become victims of the drug trade, from which people under the Vatican’s protection can fill their pockets.
