The Arsonists

Written by Swiss playwright Max Frisch in 1953, The Arsonists is “partly a domestic farce, partly a Brechtian Lehrstück, partly an absurd comedy, and partly a Greek tragedy,” says Professor of Theatre Štěpán Šimek. Subtitled as a “morality play without a moral,” the play asks a series of questions about the nature of evil. Šimek directed the fall main stage play, which included a 12-member cast and more than 30 students in production support roles. (Owen Carey)
