Written in 1956, Friedrich Durrenmatt’s The Visit is a powerful play that is relevant to contemporary America, where this production will be set. The piece addresses such issues as women’s rights, vengeance, justice, and forgiveness. The people of the town where the action takes place eagerly await the visit of Claire Zachanassian, a resident who left as a teenager. She has since become a billionaire and generous philanthropist. She is the town’s final hope. Will the town be saved? And if so, at what price?
