The Visit - 1999 - New York Tickets, News, Info & More

based on the play Der Besuch der alten Dame (The Visit) by Friedrich Dürrenmatt

Claire was driven from her hometown in disgrace when she was 17, betrayed by her lover. Many years (and seven husbands) later, she returns (beautifully dressed, but with a wooden leg) to her now-impoverished stomping grounds and offers to save the town. The price? Nothing less than the life of Schell.

Closing:December 17, 1999
