CHF 21.00 / EUR 19.00

«The Visit» is a parable about venality. Everyone has their price. The play was written in 1956 at the time of Western Europe's economic miracle. It quickly became one of the most-performed German-language pieces on stages all over the world. An aged lady billionaire returns to the impoverished village of her origin. Will the people there respond to her monstrous offer: money for revenge? Can a poor society resist such a temptation? The great african helmer Dibril Djiop Mambéty made a wonderful movie shot in his country in Africa, in which he adapted the theatrical piece of the Swiss poet into the desert.
