One of the most oft-produced plays in Europe, this parable about racism and prejudice is a great example of epic-theater. Set in fictionalized Andorra, Andri is adopted by a teacher and raised as a Jew. Throughout the play, Andri is faced with outright prejudice and complicit silence from his fellow townspeople. Frisch's message is loud and clear prejudice happens in every country, both in the past and the present, and we must learn to accept everyone's differences if we are to lead happy, productive lives.
"The guilty are sitting in the stalls ... They are to be frightened: they should, when they have seen the play, lie awake at night. " -TIME
