The Arsonists is a dark, political comedy, set in a town that is regularly attacked by arsonists. Disguised as door-to-door salesmen (hawkers), they talk their way into people's homes and settle down in the attic, where they set about planning its destruction.

The play shows how "normal" citizens can be taken in by evil. A businessman called Biedermann, is seen at the outset reading newspaper reports of arson, convinced that he could never be taken in.

Before he knows it, he’s the new victim of the scam welcoming in two Hawkers into his home. Unwittingly knowing he is helping in the cause for his own demise.
