TEHRAN – Swiss dramatist Friedrich Durrenmatt’s 1956 play “The Visit” is currently on stage at Tehran’s City Theater Complex. 

Parsa Piruzfar is the director of the play, which is about a wealthy old woman, who returns to her hometown after forty-five years to exact revenge on the man who betrayed her when she was young.

She asks townspeople to kill the man and in exchange, she promises to provide enough money to revitalize the decrepit town.

Reza Behbudi, Pantea Panahiha, Siavash Cheraghipur and Hooman Kiai are the main members of the cast for the play, which will be on stage until May 3.
