Quaker Valley’s Drama Club will be performing “The Visit” this Nov. 5 at 7 p.m. and Nov. 6 at 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. Performances will be held in the Quaker Valley auditorium, and tickets are $10 for students and $12 dollars for general admission.
Imagine this: the year is 1932, and you are living in the fictional, Eastern-European town of Güllen. Everyone in this small town has fallen into poverty over the past decade, and no one has recovered. All hope for the future is lost.
That is until Claire Zacanassian arrives.
A former resident of the town, Claire has since become a billionaire and practically owns half the world. She proposes that she will give the town one billion marks on one condition: if she gets justice.
If someone takes the life of Claire’s former lover, Alfred III, she will pull the town from poverty. Her promise of money is very, very tempting to many in the town of Güllen.
“This story is entirely different from last year’s ‘Pride and Prejudice,’” Lark Berry says. “Instead of last year's wealthy high-class vibe from the 1700s, we are now in a town riddled with debt… We have a larger cast this year, and it’s exhilarating, to say the least. Drama Club’s dynamic is more similar to a family than a cast. Everyone is so impressed with how this has come together so far.”
“The show this year is very complex and offers a wide variety of characters,” our assistant director adds. “Our cast is so incredibly talented, and we are lucky to have each and every person there. If you aren’t in Drama Club, I highly encourage you to do it! It is so fun and has such a great environment."
