    Something unusual is happening in Gottlieb Biedermann’s neighborhood. Fire-happy individuals disguised as door-to-door salespeople are taking up residence in locals’ attics, then setting their homes ablaze in Max Frisch’s 1958 play The Arsonists. Directed by Waitsfield’s Louis Bronson, the Valley Players raise the curtain on this dark comedy centered on Biedermann’s struggle to reconcile his humanity with his instinct for survival. Gallows humor, witty dialogue and poignant social commentary thread through the parable that the Washington Post described last year as “a 1950s political warning that hasn’t burned out yet.” at Valley Players Theater in Waitsfield. Mad River Valley/Waterbury (map). $12-14.
