A wealthy woman returns to her debt ridden home town and offers to revitalize the town with a multi-million dollar donation. But there is one condition: she wants the life of a villager who years ago had caused her to be expelled from the town in disgrace. The townspeople initially scoff at this absurd demand, but their views slowly give rise to the gradual corruption of everyone. Will the town commit this heinous crime in order to save itself? THE VISIT is a modern classic and won Best Foreign Play from the New York Drama Critics Circle.
