The Visit is one of the greatest European dramas of the 20th Century and this adaptation is the first to be published in the English language since Maurice Valency's original translation in 1958

Friedrich Dürrenmatt's visionary revenge play, one of the great achievements of modern German-language theatre, has been transported to mid-twentieth-century America by the acclaimed playwright Tony Kushner

In the town of Slurry, New York, post-war recession has bitten

Claire Zachanassian, improbably beautiful and impenetrably terrifying, returns to her hometown as the world's richest woman

The locals hope her arrival signals a change in their fortunes

But they soon realise that prosperity will only come at a terrible price …

This revelatory new adaptation of The Visit opened in the Olivier auditorium of the National Theatre, London, in February 2020
