THE ARSONISTS by Max Frisch
Carne Studio, LAMDA
As the city burns around them, a husband and wife are visited by two smooth talking strangers.
A dark, monochrome world mirrors the shadowy uncertainty of Biederman's mind. No object remains in place, no character is fixed. We realise the role of both the arsonists and the stage space in manipulating the couple into a fatal situation.
An absurd parable of the dangers of shallow pride and passivity in modern society.
