Death and the Maiden

By Ariel Dorfman

Set in an unnamed country that is, like the author's native Chile, emerging from a totalitarian dictatorship, the play explores the after-effects of repression on hearts and souls.

Paulina Escobar's husband Gerardo is to head an investigation into past human rights abuses.

A Dr. Miranda stops at the Escobar house to congratulate Gerardo. Paulina overhears them speaking and is convinced that Miranda supervised her prison torture sessions.

This play is a riveting intellectual and emotional tug of war that contains strong language and tackles adult themes.
