Directed by Christopher Bayes, the explosive political farce continues through Dec. 21.

The cast includes Molly Bernard, Liam Craig, Steven Epp, Allen Gilmore, Eugene Ma and Jesse J. Perez.

"Did he fall? Or was he pushed?" press notes ask. "Only one man can cut through massive bureaucratic duplicity and reveal what happened to the suspected anarchist who died at the bottom of a fourth-floor police station window. In a world of commonplace deception and organized corruption, he stands as a bastion of honor and justice—he also happens to be a notorious liar, quick-change con artist, and certified maniac."

The production features music composed and performed by Aaron Halva (who also serves as musical director) and Nathan A. Roberts, scenic design by Kate Noll, costumes by Elivia Bovenzi, lighting by Oliver Wason, sound by Nathan A. Roberts and Charles Coes, projections by Michael F. Bergmann, vocal coaching by Walton Wilson, dramaturgy by Samantha Lazar and stage management by Carolynn Richer.

Accidental Death is a co-production with Berkeley Repertory Theatre, where it will play March 7-April 20, 2014.

Tickets range from $20-98 and are available online at yalerep.org, by phone at (203) 432-1234, and in person at the Yale Rep Box Office (1120 Chapel Street, at York Street). Student, senior, and group rates are also available.
