The Visit by Friedrich Durrenmatt
A wealthy woman returns to her down-on-its luck-hometown after forty-five years. She offers the town and its residents a large sum of money in return for revenge being exacted on the man that betrayed her.
The Visit is an alarming blend of comedy and horror. The play takes place “somewhere in Central Europe” and tells of an elderly millionairess who, merely on the promise of her millions, swiftly turns a depressed area into a boom town. But the condition attached to her gift, which is unknown to the locals until after they are bought in, is murder.
The play is an entertaining parable that demonstrates the power of greed and brings into question the virtues of honor, loyalty, and community.
