When is money more powerful than your own beliefs? If you could insure the financial well-being of those you love, but you had to violate your own core values to do so, would you?  Friedrich Durrenmatt’s The Visit is the timeless classic featuring Claire Zachanassian, a german millionaire with the ability to save the town where she was born and raised.  She is willing but she requires something in return.  The town leaders must decide whether to save their town or cling to the values which have defined the town for hundreds of years.  The Visit is a fantastic ethical dilemma and one of the great plays of the twentieth century.


The Lunts chose this unforgettable play for their swan song. A wealthy woman returns to her debt ridden home town and offers a sum greater than they have ever imagined to help out. But there is a condition: she wants the life of a villager who years ago had caused her to be expelled from town in disgrace. Ringing denial of this absurd demand is followed by the gradual corruption of everyone in town. He is murdered and money is passed over his body to the town. The lady leaves with a fantastic entourage and with the coffin of her old lover. Voted best foreign play of the year by N.Y. Drama Critics Circle. "Stinging.... [with] astonishing power." N.Y. Herald Tribune. "A devastating drama." N.Y. Times.
