The VisitLesley Manville and Hugo Weaving star as former lovers in Friedrich Durrenmatt's visionary revenge story, transported into mid-20th-century America by Tony Kushner, the American playwright who won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama for Angels in America. Set in the town of Slurry in post-war New York, The Visit (or The Old Lady Comes to Call) introduces us to Claire Zachanassian, the world's richest woman who returns to her hometown. Beautiful but intimidating, her arrival - the locals hope - signals a change in their fortunes, but they soon realise that prosperity will only come at a terrible price.
