His father Reinhold, a Protestant minister, and his mother Hulda, a devout Christian, kept an orderly house and ensured that their son, Friedrich, and their daughter, Vroni, received an excellent education. The Visit study guide contains a biography of Friedrich Duerrenmatt, quiz questions, major themes, characters, and a full summary and analysis.

Duerrenmatt was 35 at the time, and the play's performance immediately won him international acclaim, cementing his reputation as a dramatist. Duerrenmatt describes "The Visit" as a "tragic. All of his plays include a degree of absurdity and the grotesque, but in doing so lay bare the hypocrisy and greed that, Dürrenmatt believed, characterized political life in post-war Switzerland.

Friedrich Dürrenmatt was born in in the village of Konolfingen, near Berne, Switzerland, and was the son of a Protestant minister. During World War II he studied philosophy and literature at the Universities of Berne and Zurich.

He wrote prolifically and traveled widely in the s, ’60s, and ’70s, taking particular interest in human rights and the preservation of Israel. Dürrenmatt never regarded his plays as finished works but was constantly revising them both in production and on the printed page untilwhen he completed Achterloo, a mammoth synoptic historical drama, after which he gave up writing plays and confined his theatrical activity to direction and to the revision of his own plays.
