Frank Theatre presents THE VISIT
September 28 through October 21, 2018 at MTM's historic Jackson Street Roundhouse

THE VISIT, by Swiss playwright Friedrich Durrenmatt, is the most well-known play by one of the most important playwrights since the second World War. Set in a small town that is in a deep economic depression, the townspeople await the visit of Claire Zachanassian, who was driven out of town as a young girl years ago because she was pregnant. Now the wealthiest person in the world who has just married her 8th husband, she returns to a town that desperately hopes her millions will save them. She, however, has a different agenda, returning with the mission to buy justice: she will offer the town her fortune in exchange for the life of the man who not only spurned her but rigged the public trial against her.

“In the fractious culture we find ourselves in today, the line between justice and revenge can get more and more thin. THE VISIT provides a chance to consider the complexities of that distinction, and does so in a very compelling and entertaining manner in this dark comedy,” says Artistic Director Wendy Knox.

THE VISIT will feature Katherine Ferrand in the role of Claire, and will be directed by Frank Artistic Director Wendy Knox with set designer Joe Stanley, costume designer Kathy Kohl, lighting designer Mike Wangen, and sound designer Dan Dukich.

THE VISIT runs Sept. 28 – Oct. 21 at the Minnesota Museum of Transportation,
193 Pennsylvania Ave E, St. Paul, MN, 55130.

Tickets are $25 ($22 for students and seniors).
