Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

'The Visit' is a consummate, alarming Durrenmatt blend of hilarity, horror, and vertigo.

Synopsis:

Dürrenmatt once wrote of himself: “I can best be understood if one grasps grotesqueness,” and The Visit is a consummate, alarming Dürrenmatt 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. Dürrenmatt has fashioned a macabre and entertaining parable that is a scathing indictment of the power of greed.

This book is absolutely spectacular! We had to read it in class in 11th grade and I actually had fun reading it. It's very funny and it really addresses a lot of important issues in society. It's great and easy to read!
