THE VISIT, by Swiss playwright Friedrich Durrenmatt, is the most well-known play by one of the most important playwrights since the Second World War. Set in a small town that is in a deep economic depression, the townspeople await the visit of Claire Zachanassian, who was driven out of town as a young girl years ago because she was pregnant. Now the wealthiest person in the world who has just married her 8th husband, she returns to a town that desperately hopes her millions will save them. She, however, has a different agenda, returning with the mission to buy justice: she will offer the town her fortune in exchange for the life of the man who not only spurned her but rigged the public trial against her.

“In the fractious culture we find ourselves in today, the line between justice and revenge can get more and more thin. THE VISIT provides a chance to consider the complexities of that distinction, and does so in a very compelling and entertaining manner in this dark comedy,” says Artistic Director Wendy Knox.

ABOUT THE VENUE for THE VISIT: The Minnesota Transportation Museum is housed in the Jackson Street Roundhouse in St. Paul, a fully functional railroad roundhouse, one of the last of its kind in the country. During winter months, the Roundhouse is a functioning work area for Museum rolling stock, often with the volunteer workforce welding, grinding and sending sparks flying. Visitors taking the escorted shop tours are often amazed at the work being performed, commenting to docents and staff that they have “…never seen anything like it.” The building was erected by the Great Northern Railway in 1907, replacing another older roundhouse. The site has been used for rail transportation since the first railroad came to Minnesota in the 1860s. The Roundhouse and surrounding grounds are a near complete display of American Industrial history from the 19th century through the mid-20th century. The roundhouse is also home to the famous Northern Pacific Railway steam engine No. 2156, best known to many Twin Cities children from the 1960s and 1970s as Casey Jones‘ steam engine, from the popular children’s program.

Michael Sommers’ critically acclaimed puppet epic returns to the stage! Inspired by Sommers’ longtime obsession with Goethe’s dramatic poem about a man who sells his soul to the devil, A PRELUDE TO FAUST conjures a miniature surreal world of tormented souls, flying spirits and disembodied hands. With virtuosic puppetry and an original score by Michael Koerner performed with a live orchestra, this landmark production is not to be missed!

"Not only is it the sort of show one regrets ending, it's tempting to come back the next night and see what unlikely moments one missed the first time. Apparently the devil really is in the details." - Quinton Skinner, City Pages (2007)

"It appears to be a puppet show, but it's much more than that. It's a social comedy, a morality tale, with some surrealism in the shape of flying human hearts thrown in for good measure." - Euan Kerr, MPR (2007)

A PRELUDE TO FAUST was commissioned by the Walker Art Center in 1998 and was the first production in Open Eye’s historic theatre in 2007. FAUST was also performed at the Henson International Festival of Puppet Theater in 2000. Open Eye co-founder Michael Sommers wrote the show after researching the Faust story in Germany and the Czech Republic.

Like any myth, meaning shifts over time, as it has in Sommers’ representation of the immortal tale since the last production more than a decade ago. With this latest production of A PRELUDE TO FAUST, Sommers explores more ecstatic violence and a more intensely heartbreaking love story.

Denial

by Peter Sagal

October 19-28, 2018

"There is darkness in all of us. Something that hates, something that could cause people to hate us, maybe, if they knew about it."

"They had been waiting to hear this message all their lives, that they were not wrong, at long last, to wonder."

"These books of Mr. Cooper's are each arrows in a wounded heart."

"You told a story about me. So beautiful it was, even I wept."

Truth. Lies. Law. Hate. DENIAL.

Denial is presented by special arrangement with The Dramatic Publishing Company of Woodstock, Illinois.
