  • Overview
    A dark comedy is set in a town that is being regularly attacked by arsonists. Disguised as hawkers, they talk their way into people's homes and settle down in the attic, where they set about the destruction of the house.

    Written in the years following World War II, it is a metaphor for Nazism and Communism, the play shows how "normal" citizens can be taken in by evil.
