ABOUT DEATH AND THE MAIDEN
Winner of the Olivier Award for Best Play
Ariel Dorfman’s explosively provocative, award-winning drama is set in a country that has only recently returned to democracy. Gerardo Escobar has just been chosen to head the commission that will investigate the crimes of the old regime when his car breaks down and he is picked up by the humane doctor Roberto Miranda. But in the voice of this good Samaritan, Gerardo’s wife, Paulina Salas, thinks she recognizes another man - the one who raped and tortured her as she lay blindfolded in a military detention center years before.
Relentlessly paced and filled with lethal surprises, Death and the Maiden is an inquest into the darker side of humanity - one in which everyone is implicated and justice itself comes to seem like a fragile, perhaps ambiguous invention.
