The Visit, Or The Old Lady Comes to Call
The National Theatre, Olivier
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.
Running in Repertory until 13.5.2020.
