Durrenmatt once wrote of himself: “I can best be understood if one grasps grotesqueness,” and The Visit is a consummate, alarming Durrenmatt blend of hilarity, horror, and vertigo.
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 largesse, which the locals learn of only after they are enmeshed, is murder.
Durrenmatt has fashioned a macabre and entertaining parable that is a scathing indictment of the power of greed.
