The Visit

Townsperson at Funeral (Emily Lodge)

Role: ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

A small, unremarkable town is plunged into an economic mire while the rest of the country booms. But, with the arrival of its most famous export, the wealthy Claire Zachanassian, things are about to change. Will she save her hometown from ruin? And what price are the people willing to pay? Dürrenmatt’s classic tragi-comedy explores the abdication of community responsibility and exposes the consequences when vengeance trumps mercy in the guise of justice.
