In the month of June, we will be reading Swiss playwright, Friedrich Durrenmatt's 'The Visit'.
The play, originally titled 'Der Besuch der alten Dame' tells the story of an elderly millionairess who, merely on the promise of her millions, swiftly turns a depressed area into a boom town. But the condition attached to her largesse, which the locals learn of only after they are enmeshed, is murder.
Friedrich Dürrenmatt (5 January 1921 – 14 December 1990) was a proponent of epic theater whose plays reflected the recent experiences of World War II. The politically active author's work included avant-garde dramas, philosophically deep crime novels, and often macabre satire. One of his leading sentences was: "A story is not finished, until it has taken the worst turn".
We will be reading it on the 28th of June at 7:30pm at 18 Anukool, Sq. Ldr. Harminder Singh Marg, 7 Bungalows. Next to Daljit Gym. All are welcome. If you need directions call Quasar on 26392688 or 9821087261.
