This year, students in the bi-annual German Play class perform Friedrich Dürrenmatt's well-known 'tragicomedy', Besuch der alten Dame ("The Visit," 1956). Claire Zachanassian, millionaire, visits her hometown to recall and correct the past. The play invites its audience to ask questions that remain relevant today: What is justice and can it be bought?

There will be a performance on Friday, April 19 and Saturday, April 20, 2013. Both performances begin at 7:00 PM.
