Marshfield Players Autumn production is The Arsonists by Max Frisch directed by Geoff Greenwood who brought us Our Town two years ago , and who has been interested in the play since seeing it at The Bristol Old Vic in 1962
The play has been described as a parable about accommodating the very thing that will destroy you. A Greek chorus of firemen introduces us to a country that is terrorised by arsonists but, as the fire-fighters assert, protected by their diligence. But Biedermann has it all under control. A respected member of the community with a loving wife and a flourishing business, surely nothing can get to him.A great philanthrope, he is happy to meet his civic duty and give shelter to two new houseguests, and when they start filling the attic with petrol drums, he’ll help them wire the fuse.
We hope this sounds intriguing and you will come along to see Marshfield Players interpretation of a classic but perhaps not so well known play. Performances will be at The Community Centre 10th-12th November.
Tickets on sale from Marshfield Central Stores soon.
