Death And The Maiden : Hyde Festival Theatre Company
Political thriller, love story - Ariel Dorfman's explosive, award-winning drama is set in a country 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 he is given a lift home by 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 centre years before.
Is this her opportunity for terrifying revenge?
'A play for today, for the age of revenge, when dictatorships crumble right and left and the victims, the living dead, emerge from the shadows and present their accounts...' (Sunday Times).
