Frank Theatre sets Friedrich Durrenmatt’s disturbing masterpiece The Visit at the Minnesota Transportation Museum, giving it a site-specific treatment starring Katherine Ferrand as Claire Zachanassian, one of the most fascinating characters in modern theater. If you aren’t familiar with the plot, don’t research it! You’re in for a ride as you watch this indictment of humanity play out. The dark nature of the play is no stranger for Frank’s artistic director Wendy Knox, who often produces challenging material. The museum itself is located in the Jackson Street Roundhouse, one of the last fully functional railroad roundhouses of its kind in the country. It was erected by the Northern Railway in 1907, and the real trains inside will provide an added experience to the show. Find tickets at www.brownpapertickets.com.
