The Visit: Encore Productions

26 September 2023, 20:00 - 28 September 2023, 20:00

In their final show as An Táin Arts Centre’s Theatre Company in Residence, Encore Productions present their adaptation of The Visit by Freidrich Durrenmatt.

The desperate citizens of Guellen await the arrival of Klara Zachanassian – the world’s richest woman and one time citizen of this blighted town. While they scheme to gain money from their visitor she hatches a plan of her own- one which will send shockwaves into the very heart of this community.

Durrenmatt’s darkly comic fable exposes hypocrisy and greed and asks us all what lengths we might go to in the pursuit of money….or revenge.

Who has dared to stop the train? Would you wear the yellow shoes? What is the true cost of Klara’s millions?

Encore Productions bring their trademark honesty and commitment to the telling of this tale – blending passionate live performance with stunning video curtesy of visionary filmmaker Dara McKluskey. The motley band of visitors and boldy drawn citizens allow this ensemble cast to really shine. The result is a thoughtful and dynamic piece of theatre sure to enthrall audiences of all ages. A boom for a body – Let’s go! Directed by Sandy Sneddon.
