About this show

A respected member of the community with a loving wife and a flourishing business, surely nothing can get to him. The 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. Popular British comic writer Alistair Beaton's elegant, witty and zestful new translation of Max Frisch's 1958 play (The Firebugs) is part moral fable, part black farce which examines the relationship between bourgeois complacency and continuing atrocity in the modern world. We immediately have to ask: what is the great evil we are failing to face up to today?
