Gottlieb Biedermann has a problem. Two strangers have weaseled their way into his home and he’s pretty sure they’re the arsonists who’ve already torched much of his small town.

Perhaps by turning a blind eye what he doesn’t want to see won’t happen. Or will it? Wickedly funny, Swiss playwright Max Frisch’s famous post-World War II political farce about our all-too-human ability to ignore acts of despicable evil gets its Canadian premiere in this not-to-be-missed production from the director and designer of Canadian Stage’s 2009 runaway hit ‘Art’. Stage favourites Michael Ball and Fiona Reid star as Biedermann and his wife Babette. Toronto-based songwriter/musician Justin Rutledge composes original music, performing live on stage with a full band.
