Ariel Dorfman’s explosively provocative, award-winning drama is set in a country that has only recently returned to democracy and still struggles with a fascist, violent history. In many ways, Death and the Maiden has more to say to America today than it ever has, and is a chilling, gripping tale of revenge and paranoia.
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 Gerardo’s wife, Paulina Salas, thinks she recognizes in Miranda’s voice the man who once tormented and tortured her as she lay blindfolded in a military detention center years before. Is this the same man?
Death and the Maiden marks the solo directorial debut of Cassie Greer, longtime B&B Resident Actor and newly appointed Associate Artistic Director!
“How does any society escape from the shadow of history? Is private revenge ever justified? And is there any judicial framework that can cope with endemic evil? These and other issues are explored with great skill in Dorfman’s still powerfully relevant masterpiece.” -The Guardian
