"How can I confess to something I haven't done?"
Tonight, a stranger calls. For Paulina Salas, his voice triggers a memory she has long tried to suppress. Through months in captivity under a brutal regime she never saw her captor’s face, but she heard his voice, calm yet menacing. A voice she will never forget. When her husband invites a stranger back to their isolated beach house, she hears that voice again.
Ariel Dorfman’s explosively provocative, Olivier award-winning play is a heart-stopping psychological thriller. Written in the wake of the Pinochet regime in Chile, Death and the Maiden boldly explores the intricacies of truth, memory and the morality of retribution. Today, the story still resonates strongly as we watch dictatorships crumble across our world.
