Auditions for "We Won't Pay, We Won't Pay" by Dario Fo.
"We Won't Pay, We Won't Pay" is inspired by actual events in 1980's Italy, where interest rates were fluctuating hundreds to thousands of percentage points in a single day.
One day in a particular village, the women decided that they had enough when a loaf of bread doubled in price from the time they entered the store until the time they went to check out. These woman revolted by looting the store, taking what they needed to feed their families.
Dario Fo takes us on a hysterical and poignant journey with two such women and their somewhat dimwitted husbands. We follow Antonia, and Margherita on their Lucille Ball-esque adventures in hiding their bounty from both their husbands and the government which is hot on their trail.
