The Visit

Gap I production – October 2017

by Friedrich Dürrenmatt

Directed by Amanda Crewes

Is money the root of all evil? Or is it people themselves?

The tragicomic story looks at an impoverished town offered $1 million if they kill a woman’s former lover – and, while the townspeople initially refuse, their resolve is worn down by the allure of wealth.

“Although first performed in 1956, this grotesque fable with its icy humour and bizarre fantastical, yet magical, moments quite undoubtedly holds a mirror up to our modern lives,” Crewes said.
