Project Synopsis
This dark comedy is set in a town that is beset upon by arsonists. Herr Biedermann, an upstanding citizen, is convinced that he could never fall for their tricks. But then a stranger appears at his door and wangles his way into Biedermann’s home and his life. This piece is intended as a cautionary tale or epic parable comedy to warn us of the evils in society that can worm their way into our lives without our knowledge.
