65 years after the play's premiere in the same house, the VIS is once again going to the Theater am Pfauen to take part in the new production of "The Arsonists" by Max Frisch. In the play, the wealthy Biedermann invites two arsons into his house despite them not hiding their intentions of burning down that very house. The "teaching play without a lesson" as it was shown at its premier received a positive reaction due to the audience understanding the play as a warning to not let strangers into your house instead of the satire on bourgeois hypocrisy as intended by the author.
Come to the theater with us and draw your own conclusions!

At 19:30, 30 minutes before the actual performance, there is an introduction to the background of the play, which we of course will not miss.
