Swiss playwright Friedrich Dürrenmatt wrote the story of a wealthy resident of the city of Güllen taking revenge on former fellow citizens who once betrayed her in 1956 as a criticism of postwar society which had not yet righted itself.

In Oleg Dobrovolsky’s production this tale takes on the features of a new mythology: what is transhumanism and can it stop evil if its mechanism was launched long ago? The modern Claire Zachanassian is a fine-tuned death machine, von Trier’s Grace from Dogville and aged Gretchen from Goethe's Faust at the same time. The protagonist of the play - Alfred Ill - faces a choice: to admit guilt and destroy himself, or, having lost everything, to change and find himself anew.
