UA's Studio Series presents The Arsonists by Max Frisch

a new translation by Alistair Beaton, directed by Laura Lippman
Adjunct Instructor for the School of Theatre, Film & Television

April 11 - 13 @8pm April 14 @ 2pm


Fires are starting all over the city, but Biedermann can take the heat. He's a well-respected, well-disposed citizen with a loving wife and thriving business so surely a fire can't start under his roof — or can it? When two smooth-talking strangers show up at his door seeking shelter, Biedermann can't deny his civic duty in spite of his simmering suspicions. But when they start filling his attic with oil drums, will Biedermann help them light the fuse? In Alastair Beaton's new translation, this "morality play without a moral" raises many questions and demands the audience members answer for themselves…if they can.

The UA Studio Series is dedicated to supporting the original and contemporary pieces of performance through a `bare essentials' production format that draws primary focus to the artistic and intellectual labor of theatre students. This approach to performance lends itself to creative learning experiences for student artists, thought-provoking experiences for audiences, and occasions for productive dialogue about topics relevant to student populations and the broader Tucson community
