The Visit or The Old Lady Comes to Call
Information for The Visit or The Old Lady Comes to Call at Olivier (National Theatre), West End (Play). Friedrich Durrenmatt's visionary revenge play, transported into mid-20th-century America by Tony Kushner (Angels in America). 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.
