Meet the good people of Güllen, a town on its knees after years of economic hardship. Hope arrives by train with the visit of a former resident, but it comes with a price. This dark comedy presents us with the question - can justice be bought?

Written in 1956 by Friedrich Dürrenmatt and translated by Maurice Valency, The Visit is a profound look at desperation with familiar resonances to Ireland's recent past.

Duration: 2 hours and 40 minutes with an interval.

Suitable for ages 16+

Content advisory: The Visit contains adult themes as well as the use of firearms and flashing images.

Please note if patrons leave the auditorium during the performance, they will not be readmitted.
