The Arsonists by Max Frisch, Transl. by Alistair Beaton

September 26 - 30, 2017

Fires are becoming a problem, but Biedermann, a respected member of the community with a loving wife and flourishing business, believes nothing can get to him. Being the great philanthropist, he happily fulfills his civic duty, giving shelter to two new house guests and then they start filling the attic with gasoline drums he'll help them wire the fuse.

Beaton's translation of Max Frisch's parable about accommodating the very thing that will destroy us premiered at the Royal Court in 2007.
