2h (with intermission) | Scena im. G. Holoubka

The richest woman on Earth, the seven times married and divorced leopardess arrives at her home town where trains do not stop and unemployment has beaten the record. Everyone’s expecting pots of money. But Claire Zachanassian is driven by revenge for her banishment and the humiliation she had been exposed to and her child’s death. She can fulfil the townfolks’ expectations providing they commit murder. Are they ready to pay such a prize? This is a story with elements of horror, comedy and reportage on crime. Like Medea in Greek mythology or Black Mamba in Tarantino’s film, Claire subordinates her life to getting even. Using the classical theme, Dürrenmatt shows us the workings of temptation and poses a question just how far the pursuit for money can be taken.
