Fires are becoming a problem, but Biedermann, a respected member of the community with a loving wife and flourishing business, believes nothing can get to him. Being the great philanthrope, he happily fulfils his civic duty, giving shelter to two new houseguests and when they start filling the attic with petrol drums he’ll help them wire the fuse. Beaton’s translation of Max Frisch’s parable about accommodating the very thing that will destroy us premièred at the Royal Court in 2007.
‘The Arsonists’ is coming to Harrogate Theatre from Tuesday 13th February to Saturday 17th February 2018. Tickets on sale soon.
