Death and the Maiden
Set in an unnamed country that is, like the author's native Chile, emerging from a totalitarian dictatorship to a rocky new democracy, Dorfman’s explosively provocative, award-winning drama explores the after effects of repression on hearts and souls. Gerardo 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 a kind doctor. Gerardo’s wife, Paulina, thinks she recognizes the doctor as the man who tormented her as she lay blindfolded in a military detention center years before. A riveting play about revenge, trauma and forgiveness.
"A terrifying moral thriller which combines brilliant theatricality with clear thought and fierce compassion." - London Sunday Times
"Suspenseful, riveting... movingly personal." - The New York Times
