Blackfriars Fall Play

THE ARSONISTS

By Max Frisch

SYNOPSIS

Fires are becoming something of a problem.  But Biedermann has it all under control.  He’s a respected member of the community with a loving wife and a flourishing business, so surely nothing can get to him. The great philanthropist is happy to meet his civic duty by giving shelter to two new guests but when they start filling his attic with petrol drums, will he help them light the fuse?

Previously known in English as THE FIREBUGS or THE FIRE RAISERS, this dark comedy is set in a town that is regularly attacked by arsonists. Disguised as door-to-door salesmen, the arsonists talk their way into people's homes and settle down in the attic, where they set about planning the destruction of the house. The play shows how normal citizens can be taken in by evil. The homeowner is convinced that he could never be taken in, yet before he can do anything to stop it, his attic is piled high with oil drums full of petrol.
