A millionairess returns to her native town to rescue its inhabitants from dire poverty. There is, however, one condition: they must murder the man who seduced her. 

In Complicite's production of Friedrich Dürrenmatt's The Visit, the Company reinvigorates the play with all the desperate comedy the playwright had intended for it.
